Since Amesbury Town Council acquired the Melor Hall in 2011 the goal was to have a museum that would showcase the importance of Amesbury, which has since been discovered to be the oldest continuous settlement in the United Kingdom.
The Melor Hall has served as a great home for the Centre, but now the time has come to expand and showcase all the new discoveries to a wider audience, and hopefully start to attract tourist from Stonehenge into Amesbury town Centre.
The new building will have facilities that will enable us to be self sustainable and to be used as an educational facility for local schools, a young Archeology club and a hub for future archeology in the area, including Blick Mead as well as preserving and exhibiting some of the priceless items that have been discovered in the local area.
During this period some exhibits and items of our historic town will be available to view at the Amesbury Community Shop and Amesbury library.
We will provide regular updates on the progress of the new build via our social media pages and here on our website.
We are excited about what the future will bring and look forward to welcoming everyone to the new Amesbury History Centre as soon as possible.
