Alderbury & Whaddon are two small villages lying next door to each other on a hill in beautiful unspoilt countryside three miles to the south-east of Salisbury, in the southern tip of Wiltshire.
With a population of about 2,000, this quiet rural backwater belies a thriving and long-standing community with a strong sense of identity.
There are a number of footpaths around the villages, (click here to download a map of the local designated footpaths), giving you plenty of free and easy exercise. A recreation ground gives you the chance to practice sports – Tennis player Violet Millicent Pinckney, who won the German championships in 1903 and reached the quarter finals of Wimbledon, was born at Alderbury, so there’s a strong sporting history here.
The parish also includes the hamlet of Shute End. The River Avon forms the western boundary of the parish and the parish is conveniently situated along the main A36, taking you to Salisbury or Southampton in minutes.
Of course, this idyllic living doesn’t come too cheap, with properties in Alderbury having an overall average price of £349,212 over the last year.

There has been a community here for centuries. A church at Alderbury was recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book. A new parish church of St Mary was erected on the same foundations in 1857–58 to designs by S S Teulon, with stained glass by William Morris and it is Grade II listed.
Ivychurch Priory, near Alderbury, was an Augustinian monastery established in the 12th century and dissolved in 1536.
In modern times, the villages are now commuter territory, and much of its former industries are gone. Families can benefit from Alderbury’s primary school, Alderbury & West Grimstead CofE (VA) Primary School (commonly abbreviated as “AWGS”), which opened in 1993 on a new site to replace a building which had been used as a school since 1838.
Whaddon has its own post office and newsagent, while Alderbury has a slightly larger local store on Canal Lane.
