Edington is situated on the northern escarpment of Salisbury Plain, within easy reach of the Westbury White Horse, the Caen Flight of locks on the Kennet and Avon canal, and any number of pretty villages and market towns. 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. The village and its church are surrounded by very attractive countryside which offers an excellent variety of footpaths, many of which offer spectacular views from Salisbury Plain.
