Edington is a small village on the edge of Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, and its Priory is one of England's most important village churches. Built by William of Edington, the distinguished former Bishop of Winchester, the church was completed in 1361.


The Friends of Edington Priory Church is a registered charity that aims to:

  • Restore and maintain the church
  • Care for the furnishings
  • Enable it to be a place of inspiration
  • Ensure it is a house of devotion

We do this by helping the parishioners with the substantial costs of maintaining this remarkable Grade I listed building.


We are working to bring you an all-new website!
Please bear with us during this period, as for technical reasons this site may not always be as up to date as we would wish. We hope to have the new website ready by the end of 2017.
