Our History

Wereham History

Next Wereham Heritage Group Event is Saturday 22 July 2017 from 2-4 pm in the Wereham Village Hall.  Come and have a mardle!  This is a much-requested follow-up from a very successful event held last year, which saw visitors of all ages explore Wereham-past. This mardle promises to be an afternoon of nostalgia, and a chance to meet up with familiar faces.

Billy the Seal Video - 1931

This film reel was made in 1931 and shows one of the most famous residents of Wereham, Billy the seal. He lived in the village pond and used to go to the local pub, The George and Dragon , for a drink of beer. He is pictured on the Wereham village sign by the pond and there are pictures of him displayed in the pub.  Thanks to The British Film Institute for their permission to include this link on our website, please CLICK HERE
