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.

Mayor Jumps to Start Appeal

Mayor Cllr Andy Williams, who’s chosen charity for his year in office is The Amesbury and Boscombe Down Link Scheme. Andy kicked off the appeal with a parachute jump. The tandem jump with The Red Devils parachute display team took place on the 5th of July. Andy said this was totally amazing and I can't thank the Red Devils enough for making it so easy.

Andy also said I chose the Link Scheme for all the outstanding work that the volunteers do in the community. The countless trips to hospitals, doctors or shopping, for those less fortunate to be able to take themselves for what ever reasons, is a service that has become very essential. Also the Link Scheme now have the new minibus which can take up to two people in wheelchairs, which is a great asset to the community and I hope any monies raised will help go to the on-going cost of running the service.  

To date the jump has raised over £1200 and is a great start to the appeal. Andy would like to thank everybody who has donated and if anybody to wishes to give a donation they can through the Community & Visitors Centre at 2 Flower Court, Flower Lane Amesbury.

Further events are taking part to help raise money for the appeal, with a Mayor’s BBQ and a Gala Dinner later in the year.

Consultation to purchase land adjacent to Bonnymead Park

The Town Council has an opportunity to purchase land adjacent to Bonnymead Park, potentially to extend the Recreation Road Cemetery and to provide additional sport and recreation facilities for the town.  It was agreed at a meeting on 20th July that it would be possible to allocate reserve funds towards the purchase of the land if the Town Council had sufficient public support. 

The area of land for sale is portioned into Lots and, should the Town Council be successful in securing all of the areas it has identified, a Public Works Loan would also be required.  It is anticipated that the repayments would not result in an increase in the future Precept (the portion of council tax collected for use by the Town Council)

Councillors welcome comments from Amesbury residents and ask that they contact the Town Clerk with their views:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
