    6 Quirky Facts About Warminster

    1. The Warminster Thing
      On Christmas Eve 1964 a local resident reported their bedroom ceiling had “come alive with strange sounds lashing at the roof.” That same night soldiers stationed at nearby Knock Camp reported “a huge chimney stack from the main block … ripped from the rooftop, then scattered … across the whole camp.” In 1965 sightings of “cigar shapes” flashing in the skies over Warminster, a “monstrous orange flame” seen “crackling and hissing” over local fields and a large number of cars breaking down, started to attract national press attention in an event the press dubbed “The Warminster Thing”. Thousands of visitors descended on the town in the hope of a close encounter. Because of the ongoing number of sightings each year, Warminster is considered the UFO capital of the UK.
    2. Cover Up?
      A report from the MOD in 2016 stated an, “increase in atmospheric dust and emissions can contribute to the formation of dusty plasmas and may have been responsible for an increase in sightings.” It went on to explain that the increase in plasmas could cause psychological effects on the local population such as “vivid but mainly incorrect” recollections and reports of the event plus “extended memory retention and repeat experiences”. Once again this had locals, UFO investigators and conspiracy theorists up in arms, some claiming a cover up by the MOD and government. The truth is out there…
    3. Seven Hills
      Warminster is surrounded by 7 hills, 3 of which held Iron Age forts. There have been a number of caches of Roman coins discovered and also the remains of 2 Roman villas. But it’s the UFOs that continue to be the centre of attention, even the tallest and largest of the Iron Age forts at Clay Hill has become something of a mecca for UFO spotters (similar to trainspotters but they wear different badges).
    4. Attention!
      Warminster has a rich military background. During the English Civil War there were a number of battles focusing largely on Warminster Common and the town changed hands at least four times. The town supported the crown during the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685. The area around Warminster was used to house and train troops from Australia, New Zealand and Canada during WWI. Today Battlesbury Barracks (which like Warminster, sits on the edge of the MODs largest training area, Salisbury Plains) is an important army training base, home to a number of specialist army training schools. Both Prince William and Prince Harry completed parts of their training at nearby Westbury.
    5. Ghost Village
      In 1943 the inhabitants of the nearby village of Imber were given just 47 days to leave their homes forever and the entire village was then used by the military in preparation for the Allied invasion of Europe. The village is now inside Salisbury Plains and has been used by the military for training ever since. Access is granted for visits several times a year for those wishing to return to the village which has been featured in TV shows including BBC’s Top Gear.
    6. Benefactor
      Much of the town’s prosperity has risen from cloth making. In 1807 one local factory owner, George Wansey left £1,000 (the equivalent of approximately £80,000 today) for improvements to the town on the proviso that the people of the town should match the sum through local fund-raising. It was achieved the money was used to pull down houses and widen roads to ensure traffic and trade continued to pass through Warminster.

Warminster has a variety of very busy groups and societies, encompassing all manner of interests, art, poetry, cooking, baking needlework, classic cars and man-sheds. The town is surrounded by stunning countryside and some great hill walks, leading to 3 Iron age forts. Longleat is less than 10-minutes away and an annual pass gives you access to the large number of events on their calendar.
