Please note: The Curator will be out of office from the 13th-23rd July and from the 27th July-13th August. During this time it may take longer to respond to queries.
On the 20th July there will be a slight change to our opening times – we will open from 1pm-4 and not our usual weekday opening of 2pm-5pm.
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.
