Westbourne Village History

Thanks to the people who have lived and still live in Westbourne today, there is a great deal known about the history of the village.

There are two primary sources of information:

Westbourne Local History Group

The Group was formed in 1978 with the express purpose of recording the history of the village mainly by publishing a series of booklets covering specific topics.  Seventeen booklets (some updates) have been published so far and more works will follow.
