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.


Summer is bursting to life and, with Covid restrictions now behind us, we wish our Friends far and wide a very happy holiday season.

We’re looking forward (cautiously!) to our Music Festival this year, and hope that many of you will be able to join us in Edington for the first time since 2019. The link below has more details of the Festival, as well as other events and concerts in the church.

Finally, don’t forget that you can just drop in anytime during the day to enjoy the ambience in the church itself.
