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

Longer days...

A wet winter and a wet spring were the precursors to a cold, wet summer. But we hope that you will take the opportunity to sample the warmth of the welcome at our lovely Priory Church.

Please visit our What’s On page for up to date information about things happening in the church. Our next big event is the annual Music Festival, which runs from 18th to 25th August. As usual, Friends’ Day is on the final Saturday of the Festival, which this year falls on 24th August. We do hope to see many friends, old and new, during the busiest week of Edington’s year.

Don’t forget that the church is always open for visitors, whether you want to see our smart new lights, enjoy the peace and quiet, or simply to look around.
