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.


Longer days...

Well, the clocks have gone forward, Easter is behind us, and the daffodils are over. Spring is at least on the calendar and, even if there seems little end to the protracted wet winter, the temerature is rising slowly and fitfully.

Towards the end of March we welcomed the Oxford Bach Soloists for a performance of JS Bach’s St John Passion. Now, we’re looking forward to our annual Choral Workshop on 15th June, when Chris Bruerton will be exploring the music of eastern European composers. For details – and a link to our regular church services – head over to our Whats On page.

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.
