Westbury, hundreds of years old at the time of the Norman Conquest, was a 14th century moated manor, a farm and now a thriving arts centre. Discover its surprisingly rich history.

The exhibition has been put together with help from a group of volunteers who have researched the site. A Saxon pendant excavated here in the 1980’s was one of the earliest indications that the site has a rich history. The 14th century moated manor was replaced in 1670 by a manor house that form the core of the present day building and was until the arrival of the new city of Milton Keynes a farm and home for several generations of tenants and owners.

Westbury’s story is showcased in the exhibition alongside information about the flora and fauna of the area, Shenley Wood is nearby. The Natural History Society has researched, surveyed and documented the wildlife: Westbury is home to a distinctive variety of flora and fauna including protected bats and great crested newts.

No booking required.

Access: Small step up to the front entrance. Accessible toilets, assistance dogs welcome, disabled parking.
