Edington Priory Church
The Priory Church of St. Mary, St. Katharine and All Saints was consecrated in 1361 and is a Grade 1 listed building. The interior is beautiful and inspiring featuring mediaeval stained glass and a plaster vaulted ceiling. It has a particular atmosphere of prayer which draws people to worship God. They hold around seven services each month in this church.
Edington village is named after Ethandun. It was the site of a pivotal battle in 878 AD in which King Alfred the Great defeated the Danes and gave rise to English nationhood.
Today, Edington Priory Church is the venue for the widely-known Edington Music Festival.
The parish of Edington has a close connection with the (largely) redundant church of St. Giles, Imber within the Salisbury Plain Military Training Area.
