Welcome to Shrewton
The village of Shrewton in Wiltshire is located 3.5 miles north-west of Stonehenge, midway between Salisbury and Devizes and just under five miles from the town of Amesbury.
It is a small community of about 1,800 people that boasts many historic buildings, a strong sense of community spirit and a beautiful rural setting.
Shrewton has been in existence for centuries. The Domesday Book records that there were 60 households in what has now become the parish of Shrewton and the first recorded use of the name Shrewton, which derives from the old English term for ‘Sheriff’s farm’ (or settlement), was in 1236. The village and the surrounding area is a popular destination for tourists looking to explore the history and culture of the English countryside.
The village has a number of community events and activities, which bring locals and visitors together.
