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 rural 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 the Manton House Estate (home to two internationally renowned horse racing yards), the Temple Farm Estate and unspoiled beauty of Barton Dene. 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 West Woods and the Wansdyke.
The most recent claim to international fame came with the appearance of Manton House yards in the blockbuster Netflix series The Crown. Preshute continues to champion an unmatched stage to the drama and heritage of the English countryside at its finest.
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.
The Preshute Parish Council Helpline for parishioners who are shielding or self-isolating is now closed.
