Devizes Literary and Scientific Institution - new history!
Local historian Elizabeth Gibbs has just published a brief history of the Devizes Literary and Scientific Institution by Elizabeth Gibbs. The Institution has a fascinating history, and was founded in 1833, and moved to the present building on Northgate Street in 1907. You can buy the book in a number of local bookshops, and also online from the Museum website.
