Welcome to the web site of the

Fovant History Interest Group

Please click here to enter

Fovant History Interest Group consists of a small band of residents who are actively engaged in researching and recording the history of their village in south-west Wiltshire, England. As other villagers became aware of the group's interest, information and artefacts began to arrive – and continue to do so. A welcome development.

With the setting up of this website we hope to benefit from the involvement of a wider audience. Anyone, anywhere, can become a member. If you have information about Fovant, please share it with us, either via the "Contact us" button, or to our email at mclharden@btinternet.com.
