Preshute Parish Council
Welcome to the Preshute Parish website where you should find the information you need about our wonderful Wiltshire countryside parish. The parish stretches from the Manton House and Temple Farm Estates in the north through the village of Clatford and borders the villages of Manton in the east and Lockeridge in the west. Most of the parish area area is devoted to agriculture, but there is a very busy business park next to the Bath Road at Clatford. There is a private airstrip to the north of the business park. Manton House is home to two internationally recognised horse racing yards.
The Parish is located some 3 miles west of Marlborough on the Marlborough Downs and includes the unmatched West Woods and Wansdyke Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
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.
