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

There's a bit of Spring in the air!

Even though we are still in Lockdown and having to be patient and aware of the Government restrictions, it seems there’s a little optimism about.   The days are lengthening, the snowdrops are wonderful, there are daffodils beginning to show their yellow trumpets, Lent has started, there are larks on the wing and the news isn’t all bad.

The church is open for visitors, so do pop in if you are passing to look around or have a quiet five minutes.   You are always welcome.

We wish all our friends, wherever they are, better times ahead.
