Our Parish is shaped as an arc around the north and east of Salisbury City. It provides a much valued transition from urban to rural spaces, with community open spaces, commercial farmland, water meadows, beautiful chalk downs, an historic grass airfield, recreation grounds and many footpaths and byeways. The map of the Parish on the right gives a schematic view of situation. However, as can be seen, it does not have a single definable “community centre”. Instead, it consists of several settlements, comprising its current 4200 dwellings, some long established but the majority built over the past 30 years and with significant numbers still in construction.
