History of the Church

Tower and original church built in 15th Century. Rest of church rebuilt and expanded in 1846 to include the North Aisle. The richly carved oak pulpit (dated1628), lectern and prayer desk came from the old church in Wilton and were gifted by the Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery. The Popjay Tomb in the churchyard dates from the early 19th Century and has an amusing history. The old (1876) pipe organ was replaced in 2022 with an excellent digital instrument allowing for the refurbishment and modernisation of the Vestry.

About Wylye

St Mary the Virgin is Grade 2* 13th C (pop 412).   There is a pub (The Bell), and a refurbished Village Hall which is much used for a variety of purposes, including charity and club events, and Harvest suppers.   A playground and a combined Post Office and thriving shop are also in the heart of the village.  In 2010 an embroidery group brought church and village together when they embroidered a new altar kneeler which was later dedicated by the Bishop of Ramsbury.
