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.



With great regret, but according to Government instructions, from today – 24 March 2020 – the church is now closed until further notice.

We are thinking of all our Edington friends far and wide and hope you stay safe and well.   Thank goodness we all have the spring, burgeoning growth, birdsong and fresh air to appreciate, when everything else is closing down.

In the light of this, we will 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.
