A Hidden English Gem

Edington’s majestic Priory church towers over this enchanting little village, tucked beneath the escarpment on the edge of Salisbury Plain. Built in the 14th century by former Bishop of Winchester William of Edington, the Grade I listed building is now Wiltshire’s only perfect monastic church. Since 1956, supporters from far and wide have been helping local people to restore, maintain and improve this remarkable building.

CHURCH HISTORY

Sunnier Days Ahead ... (we hope)

Now progressing through the roadmap out of lockdown, we must remain patient and aware of the Government restrictions.

Half way through the year, with the beginning of summer and many people now vaccinated there really is an air of optimism and a bit more of a buzz about the place.   (Both bees and people!)

The church is open for visitors, so do pop in if you are passing to look around or have a quiet five minutes.   You are always welcome.

We wish all our friends, wherever they are, better times ahead.
