Wiltshire Heritage Museum faces ruin!

WILTSHIRE Heritage Museum in Devizes could be"effectively bankrupt" in two to three years unless Wiltshire Council comes to its aid.

The museum, which houses the most significant Bronze Age collection outside London, has been running at a deficit ever since the then Wiltshire County Council cut its grant several years ago and last year the shortfall was £69,000, effectively the cost of running the museum.

It is owned and run by the Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Society, a registered charity.
