Wiltshire: A Stroll Around the Churches of Shrewton
A 5km scenic trail taking in 3 CCT churches around Shrewton.
Shrewton – ‘Sheriff’s town’ – comprises at least seven early settlements, which explains the proliferation of church buildings dating back to at least C13th, indicating a pious and wealthy population due to the rich arable farming in the area. A stroll around the village reveals its interesting ‘recent’ history; a walk further afield on the Salisbury Plain will treat you to Neolithic earthwork remains which pre-date Stonehenge. This guide gives a 5km circular walk between three churches which are cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT), whilst alerting you to some of the local features as you go.
Dogs are welcome – but please keep them on a lead in and around all of our churches.
