East Knoyle is a thriving community of some 700 people in the county of Wiltshire

Situated in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Warminster and Shaftesbury, just off the A350 and only a couple of miles from the A303, East Knoyle is perhaps best known as the birthplace of Sir Christopher Wren in 1632. This site, which is sponsored by Wren’s Shop, has been planned and created in conjunction with the Parish Council.

If you live locally, we hope you will find it informative and useful. To visitors from further afield we welcome you to this window on life in East Knoyle and it's surrounding Hamlets. If you have ideas and wish to contribute to the site, perhaps with photographs, share news, to record or post an event or something which you feel is currently missing and would improve it, please do so by contacting us.
