Westbury (Wilts)

Recommended Posts


Is anyone following Westbury or surrounding areas?

It looks like I'll be getting a work transfer there from Bristol, and I'm weighing up whether to rent or buy (max. £180,000 - 2/3 bed houses). My plans at the moment are to retire in around 8 or 9 years time and then move back to the East Midlands/South Yorkshire. I don't know much about the area, other than Westbury itself seems to be dull but bearable.

Any insights gratefully received.

I seem to recall there's a cement factory that pours out a nasty stink, make sure you're not generally to the east of that.

Shut down now. Chimney was demolished one Sunday morning several weeks ago.

I would also be interested in any info anyone has for this area. 

Reasonably cheap, certainly much cheaper than Bath and Bristol to which you are getting easy access. Some very nice rolling hills, downs, countryside and more white horses than a day at Epsom. But Westbury itself is fairly unexciting red brick market town which has grown a lot in recent years through suburban sprawl.
