Please note: Our last open day before Christmas will be Wednesday 19th December. We will be closed for the duration of January to February for maintenance work.
Thank you for your understanding.
We are a small museum in the heart of Billericay High Street dedicated to the history of the area and its community. Pay us a visit and learn something new about the town! There is no entry fee but we do welcome donations.
74 High Street was purchased by Mrs. Alice Cater in memory of her husband, William, and to provide Billericay with a museum. The Cater Museum opened officially in 1960 and featured collections from the Caters, Harry Richman (our first curator), Anthony Nicholl and A. Basil Brooks.
Please note we will be developing this website further in the near future so stay tuned.
