History 

Salisbury History

Salisbury/

An iron age fort was built on Salisbury Hill 2,500 years ago about 2 miles north of the modern town centre. In the 6th century AD the Saxons invaded Wiltshire. In 1003 the Vikings raided Wilton and founded a new settlement and in 1069 William the Conqueror built a wooden castle.

The modern town of Salisbury began about 1217 when the Bishop decided to move his seat to land owned by the church south of the hill. The main industry in Medieval Salisbury was making wool cloth. Work on Salisbury Cathedral began in 1220 and continued until 1258. The tower and spire were added in 1334. Salisbury grew to be one of the largest towns in England by the 15th century. 

When the civil war started in 1642 Salisbury escaped the fighting for two years and remained in royalist hands until January 1646. By then the king was losing the war and he withdrew his troops from Salisbury. The population dwindled but in the 19th century the population increased. In the 20th century Salisbury continued to grow quite rapidly but it remained an agricultural town. Today tourism is one of the main industries.
