Warminster Town Council
Warminster, with its 'background of brooding hills', is a small market town attractively situated on the edge of Salisbury Plain. The town has a population of over 23,000, including the residents of the garrison which at present is home to 1st Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment.
By the middle of the 17th century it was the 'greatest corn-market by much in the West' and attracted other trades such as malting, cloth production and iron founding. Corn and cloth gave rise to much of the architecture in the town centre, but today Warminster is recognised for its links with the garrison, along with some light industry and tourism.
