Welcome to the Preshute Parish website where you should find the information you need about our rural Wiltshire countryside parish. Located on the Marlborough Downs and entirely within in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we are a community of some 193 residents. The focus is on farming, forestry and preserving the heritage of our historic countryside, while there is a busy business park on the Bath Road at Clatford. The parish includes two internationally renowned horse racing yards, the Temple Farm Estate and unspoiled beauty of Barton Dene. The Manton House yards featured in the blockbuster Netflix series The Crown. We border Manton and the communities of Barton Park and College Fields in the east and Lockeridge lays to the west. Our southern border takes in the unmatched Wansdyke and West Woods (now identified as the source of Stonehenge's mighty Sarsen Stones).
While showcasing the best of British countryside and heritage, Preshute continues to champion the countryside economy and being an unmatched open and natural space for all.
This website is designed to provide easy to access information about how the Parish Council works, our services, projects and activities, local events and links to other websites. You will find contact details for your Councillors and our Clerk below.
At a meeting on 14th July, Preshute Parish Council unanimously voted to leave the Marlborough Area Neighbourhood Plan. This reluctant decision was made after extensive discussion and a detailed review of Preshute's association with this project.
