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.


Sumer is Icumen in, as the old song says.

With summer almost upon us, swallows in the air, bees a-buzz with the oil seed rape and gardens in bloom, the farmers are busy and the year advances apace.   Edington doesn’t stand still.   Festival plans are set and some lovely concerts to look forward to.    Click on the link below to see what is happening in the Priory Church.
