    Westbury – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Battle of Edington
      A mile from Westbury is the site of one of the most pivotal battles in English history. Alfred the Great had been defeated and with a few followers was forced to flee and hide in the Somerset marshes. He sent out messages to all his supporters to raise an army that marched to Westbury to defeat the Viking army encamped there. The battle took place just outside the town, under the slopes that now hold the famous white horse. Alfred won, the Vikings fled and it was from this point that he went on to drive the Vikings out of Wessex and eventually build the single nation of ‘Englaland’. Had he lost that battle, the country would have remained under Danelaw and England might never have been created.
    2. White Horse
      Westbury’s famous white horse (the symbol of the town) is the first and original white horse. In the 19th century the horse attracted tourists (and their money) to the town, where they were duped into believing the horse actually dated back to King Alfred’s battle as he had ridden a white horse into victory. However, the earliest signs of a horse date back to the 18th century.
    3. Vote Westbury!
      Westbury changed the way the UK and subsequently the world votes. In 1868 two wealthy businessmen and landowners Abraham Laverton and JL Phipps competed to become Westbury’s MP. At the time voting was done by a show of hands in Market Square (the square is largely unaltered today). Phipps won by 27 votes but Laverton contested this, saying that Phipps’ foremen had threatened his workers and tenants that if they didn’t vote for Phipps, they’d lose their jobs and homes. A trial was held in the town hall and the vote declared null. Laverton ran again, going up against Phipps’ brother. Again, there were calls of intimidation. As a result, a bill was passed in Parliament that all voters should cast their ballot in private to avoid any outside influence. The practise to protect voters’ rights went on to be copied throughout the world. Good work Westbury!
    4. Bad Blood
      The story doesn’t end (or even start) there. Laverton, the son of a weaver was a local, self-made man who had opened his own mill. Having risen to public office he had a very public spat with Charles Phipps over who was the senior magistrate, before standing against his brother as MP. After John Phipps death, a monument to him was erected in Market Square, outside the Town Hall (now a fast-food restaurant) where his election had been overturned. The monument is still there. Laverton’s name also lives on, as well as a street, the local town council is located inside The Laverton building and some of his mills are still standing and have been converted into homes.
    5. West Borough
      The town’s name comes from the fact that it was the most western borough in the county of Wiltshire. Simple.
    6. Two Princess
      Both Prince William and Prince Harry trained in Westbury while serving in the army. It’s where they completed their RCB (Regular Commissions Board) tests on route to becoming officers. Tests included an assault course, planning exercises and a physical which required 44 press-ups in two minutes. Phew!

    About Westbury

    Once an important market town with a cloth and glove industry, Westbury held borough status and at one point had two MPs. It has played a vital role in England’s history, providing pivotal moments for British (and indeed world) politics and also a turning point in the very formation in the creation of England as a country.

    Today a quiet town, it doesn’t have the biggest range of shops but it does have a busy and noisy events calendar including colourful music festivals and Christmas traditions.


    Westbury has one of the country’s oldest swimming pools, there is also a leisure centre and a number of good restaurants. Shopaholics won’t find too much to get their plastic out for, but Warminster and Trowbridge both offer a wider selection of shops.

    Westbury has a number of festivals including a vintage car show, summer festival, Christmas festival (both held in the market square), there is also the Westbury Festival with live music and performance, plus the Village Pump Festival that has hosted names like The Proclaimers, Bellowhead and Fishermen’s Friends.

    Bratton Camp overlooking the white horse was the site of an Iron Age fort and today is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.


    Within easy commuting distance to Bath, Westbury has a mainline rail station and London can be reached in 1 hour and 22 minutes. The main road through the town is the A350 linking Warminster and Trowbridge although in recent time locals have been fighting for a bypass to be built.
