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, a 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.

Tickets for the popular annual Musical Evening & Supper are now on sale.
This year's event is on Wednesday 26th August, at 6:30 for 7:00pm, and full details are featured on our events page.

You'll also need tickets for the Friends' Celebration Lunch on our annual Festival Day, 29th August. The programme, which you can download here, includes ordering information.
