Rosemary Addington

Rosemary Addington attributes her keen interest in Wiltshire history and the VCH to her father, Richard Lamb, a historian. Her parents lived at Broadchalke, steeped in Wiltshire history, with a Roman road running through their farm, and nowadays at the centre of the Chalke Valley history Festival.  Rosemary lives at Highway near Calne with her husband, Peter, a retired famer. She trained as a nurse at St Thomas’ Hospital and worked as a practice nurse in Calne, but gave that up in 2014 to help her husband with his year as High Sheriff of Wiltshire. She is a keen supporter of the Calne Music and Arts festival, and chaired the festival committee in the recent past. She has also been a governor of Springfields School and is involved with the local partnership of churches.
