Amesbury is situated 8 miles north of Salisbury, with Salisbury Plain further to the north. The town is surrounded by an ancient landscape. The parish boundary of Amesbury encompasses the Neolithic site of Stonehenge - a world heritage site which attracts over a million visitors a year.
Amesbury is steeped in history. It is an older settlement than Salisbury, founded in 979 when an Abbey was built.
Over the past 30 years the town has seen major housing developments to the south, with Kings Gate the most recent, still under construction.
We have just heard that construction of the new boardwalk has been delayed due to the weather. When we have a new start date we will update this page, apologies for any inconvenience caused by this delay.
Notices will be erected at the time of the installation, and we would ask that you bear with us for a while, as the footpath may not be passable during construction.
Wiltshire Council will be holding the following Local Housing Panel Meetings at Amesbury Resource Centre in the Sports & Leisure Centre.
We would like to invite our residents and leaseholders to come and speak with ourselves informally. For this reason we don’t set any agenda for these meetings. As you know we have invited Area Board Community Engagement Manager and parish and town councillors to come along and meet people also. We are targeting our own property residents but will also welcome private owners and renting people as their views on local issues are equally important.
Wednesday 10th Feb, 7.00pm – 8.30pm, at the Amesbury Sports Centre,
Tuesday 23rd Feb, 10.30am – 12 noon at the Amesbury Sports Centre
