Play field enhancements
The children’s play equipment in Edington Playfield was officially opened on Saturday 15th October by Councillor Jerry Wickham, Chairman of Westbury Area Board. The opening celebration took place during the Three Daggers Fundraising Hop Fest and music afternoon.
Edington Parish Council funded the new climbing apparatus and safety matting with a £3,500 grant from the Westbury Area Board, a very generous donation from a local charity event, a donation from a local business and from proceeds from the Three Daggers autumn Hopfest. The Parish Council is grateful to everyone who has contributed towards this project.
Edington is situated on the northern escarpment of Salisbury Plain. It is an historically renowned village mentioned in the Domesday book and famous for being the location of the Battle of Edington in 878 AD between King Alfred and the Danes.Welcome to the Edington village website. We aim to provide both residents and visitors to the village with all of the information they may require.
The village contains a superb 14th Century Priory Church and the recently refurbished and renovated “Three Daggers” Public House as well as a number of picturesque houses. It is surrounded by very attractive countryside which offers an excellent variety of footpaths, many of which offer spectacular views from Salisbury Plain. The well-known Edington Music Festival is held annually in the Church., BBC television included a programme on the 50thanniversary of the Music Festival in its series “A Passion for Churches” which was transmitted on BBC2 in April 2006. Edington was the joint winner of the “Village of the Year” competition in 1999. The judges were particularly impressed with the community spirit as evidenced by the wide range of events and activities. Many of these have continued to the present day; these include The Jazz Festival, The Summer Ball, The Village Fair & Evening Party, and the Flower and Produce Show.
