Sherston Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Wiltshire...

A splendid Norman church with an 18th century tower makes an imposing centrepiece for this attractive village near Malmesbury.

The writer Siegfried Sassoon made the place famous by naming one of his leading characters George Sherston but many years earlier, in 1016, it had become infamous as the scene of a battle in which the Saxons defeated an army of Danes.
