Welcome to The Trust for Devizes
We hope you find the information you are looking for. If you think we can help you can contact us through the "Contact Us" page. Devizes has a fine history, much of which is encapsulated in many of our historic buildings; it was a major centre for trade and has been the main market in the area for almost 900 years. Many interesting people lived here, artists, archaeologists, inventors, admirals, writers, industrialists and national politicians. The Trust is a collection of people who are proud of our past and concerned to retain the character of a fine historic Market Town and the benefits of living in it. We do not wish to stop progress or live in a time-warp, but we do recognise that change has to be carefully and sensitively managed if our heritage is to be preserved. We are proud of our town and want visitors to enjoy it as we do. If you are coming to Devizes as a visitor take a look at our new Town Trail (available at the Museum and Devizes Books). We are sure you will find it fascinating. The Trust is active in defending the heritage of our town and the quality of life for those who are fortunate enough to live here. Do take a look at our News pages and, for a summary of our current activity see our various campaigns in the "Activities" menu.
