The Time Whisperers

Woodford Valley, Wiltshire


The Time Whisperers bring the past to life by recording and presenting oral histories from the Woodford Valley, north of Salisbury in Wiltshire, UK.

Over the past year, The Time Whisperers team has recorded around twenty interviews with a wide range of individuals with memories of life in The Woodford Valley, recounting personal stories dating as far back as the 1930s.

The Time Whisperers first event at the Village Hall, Middle Woodford on 21/22nd September 2013 presented a selection of stories combined with stunning photos and artifacts to showcase the project's work.

If you missed the audio streams presented at the event, or would like to hear them again, use the Streams section below to play the recordings. Alternatively, use the Full Interviews section to drill down into the full histories of the wonderful characters who gave up their time to the project.
