Sister Cities of the World

Sister cities of Warminster

Warminster is a town in western Wiltshire, England, by-passed by the A36 (between Salisbury and Bath) and the partly concurrent A350 between Westbury and Blandford Forum. It has a population of about 17,000. The River Were runs through the town and can be seen running through the middle of the town park. The bottom step of the town hall in the centre of the town is said to be at the same height above sea level as the top of Salisbury cathedral.(This is, regrettably, an "Urban Myth". The Close where Salisbury Cathedral sits is 157 ft above sea level. Warminster town centre is around 390 ft above sea level. The cathedral spire is 404 ft tall. The maths do not add up.) Minster Church of St Denys sits on the River Were. The name Warminster first occurs in the early 10th century.
