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.


Covid 19: Church open again

During the weekend beforehand, the churchwarden and vergers went into the Priory Church to ready it for re-opening on Monday 15 June.   Now, the church is also open for general worship.

You are welcome to visit the church, but please bear in mind the evolving government guidelines, follow the advice given on entering the church – and don’t forget your face mask!

As the lockdown time has been passing, we often think of our Edington friends far and wide and hope you remain safe and well.

We endeavour to keep the website as up to date as possible.  Please keep checking our What’s On page for information on whether or not services, concerts and events will go ahead.
