·         The main aim of the project was to record as many buildings as possible in the High Street – their architecture, fabric and building techniques – through photography, documentary research, sketches and surveyed drawings and archaeological investigation eg dendrochronological [tree ring] dating.

 

·         The objectives were to produce records of individual buildings, an archive which would be curated at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre and, eventually, a publication which would be of interest and use to local people, schools, historical groups, Corsham Town Council etc.

 

·         The project was being promoted by the Corsham Civic Society in collaboration with Wiltshire Buildings Record who would provide advice, training and some specialist services. The involvement of local volunteers and their training was an important element of the project.
