Other Swindon blogs

While I am of course the self-proclaimed premier blogger of Swindon, said with tongue planted firmly in cheek, there are many other wonderful, more subject specific blogs. Here’s just some that I know of:

Swindon Artswords  – @swindonartsword

Why read? Swindon Artswords is about a programme of literature development activities in Swindon. It runs from Lower Shaw Farm and is linked to Swindon Borough Council’s Swindon libraries service.

 I just LOVE the strapline on this blog: ‘Swindon arts blog: living in an unexpected creative hotspot…’  Because yep, it is. And that’s something I’ve worked hard to convey in Born again Swindonian.

Friends of Swindon Museum and Art Gallery: Friends of SM&AG work to help Swindon Museum and Art Gallery in conserving and adding to the collection.

Moving on to history now we have two splendid historical blogs both from the pen of Frances Bevan. Frances is one of the town’s fabulous historians. Together with Graham Carter and Mark Sutton she is part of the splendicious Swindon Heritage Magazine.   @FrancesBevan &
