Welcome to Preshute, our Wiltshire countryside parish. We are to be found on the Marlborough Downs and entirely within in the North Wessex Downs Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Our southern border takes in the unmatched Wansdyke
and West Woods (now identified as the source of Stonehenge's mighty sarsen stones), while to our west is the World Heritage Area of Avebury. We are a countryside community and our focus is on the rural economy including farming, world class equestrian sport, leisure and forestry. We treasure the heritage of our historic setting and being an unmatched open and natural space for all.

This website includes information about the parish, the Parish Council, our emerging Neighbourhood Plan and other local activities. You will find contact details for your Councillors and our Clerk at the foot of the page.

Local Roadworks

29th December 2021

Wiltshire Council have advised the A345 at Pound Lane Oare, will be closed to through traffic for urgent Ash Dieback treework. 

The closure will be in effect from Tuesday 4th January 2022 for 21 days (taking it to 24th January).

This is likely to cause major disruption to all other routes between Marlborough and Pewsey and will require a diversion route to travel between the two towns.
