Welcome to Norton Bavant

In the heart of the Wylye Valley

Norton Bavant Village, Wiltshire

Norton Bavant is situated at the western end of the beautiful Wylye valley in Wiltshire a couple of miles east of Warminster. The village lies close to the river Wylye overlooked by the hills of Scratchbury and Cotley, both over 190 metres above sea level.

The village of Norton Bavant extends northwards beyond these hills encompassing two outlying farms and extending onto Salisbury Plain. It is located 19 miles from the Roman city of Bath and twenty miles from the medieval city of Salisbury.

Here is your invitation to a Zoom Church Service from Norton Bavant on Sunday, 25th July at 10:45am for 11:00am, we do hope you can join us.

Boat Race and BBQ – The village Boat Race and BBQ will be held on Saturday 7 August. Timings have been set to avoid clashing with Olympic events on the same day. See attached Flyer details and, more importantly, Boat Race Rules. Want to Help setting up?

For those unfamiliar with the boat race, it involves you (or your children) making a small boat no larger than 10 x 4 inches (which must not be powered!). All the boats will be launched together from the bridge by the Old Mill and float downstream to the finishing line at the weir by the Sutton Veny Road.

After that, some BBQs will be lit on the village field so you can bring your own drinks and food to cook, possibly a salad or something to share, and enjoy meeting neighbours and old friends. There might be some rounders, croquet and football if anyone wants. Do feel free to bring friends and family.

This is a non-fundraising event for us all to have a bit of fun and meet up again after a long lockdown. So, whilst being sensible about social distancing etc, please come and have some fun!
