Important information: We are currently closed for maintenance work. We are due to re-open on the 5th February. 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.
