Codford, Wiltshire

The Wool Store: North Elevation in January 2006 during conversion to flats

The Wiltshire project, focused on the west Wiltshire parish of Codford (an amalgam of the ancient parishes of Codford St Mary, Codford St Peter and Ashton Gifford), and was the first of the 15 projects to be completed and the first of the paperback series to be published by Phillimore. Proposed as a project for an HLF application as early as 2000, the Codford project acted as the pilot for the England's Past for Everyone HLF application, granted in 2005.

In 2002, VCH Wiltshire Assistant Editor Carrie Smith, began the research into a parish history of Codford. Despite a hiatus between 2003 and 2005 while the HLF application for the EPE project was being processed, Codford was included within the final EPE project design, with a one year project to be led by Dr John Chandler. This short brought all of the previous work together, delivering the three EPE outputs of a paperback book entitled 'Codford: Wool and War in Wiltshire', an interactive website and a schools project.

To enhance the historical research already completed, Dorothy Treasure and Clive Carter of the Wiltshire Buildings Record were commissioned to produce a full interpretative survey of a large industrial building on the village high street. The Wool Store played an important part in the history of the village and the opportunity to survey it during its conversion to apartments yielded a thorough and comprehensive report.
