This Is Us....


Bulkington, Wiltshire is a quiet farming village on

the edge of Salisbury Plain close to the market towns

of Devizes and Trowbridge, and a short distance from the beautiful town of Marlborough. The world renowned cities of Bath, to the west, and Salisbury, to the south, are both a forty minute drive. 


For many years a well kept secret, this lovely area of Wessex benefits hugely from its local geology with chalk downland and clay vales. The iconic White Horses at Westbury and Cherhill, the tranquil Vale of Pewsey and, of course, the world heritage site of Stonehenge, are all within east striking distance.

Here you will find information about our village  community, the  services on offer, everything  on the work of our Parish Council,  a wealth of Bulkington Village History and all kinds of other useful local information. 

How we were.....

Photo from Mark..jpg

We estimate this photograph to be roughly between 1905 - 1911.  The landlord’s name on the pub sign is Axford, which would be John Axford. He was the landlord of the Bell at the time of the 1911 census.

It is with great sadness that we are cancelling the BULKINGTON VILLAGE CAROL SERVICE (19th December). After much thought we realise that, with the current Covid-19 situation, the church is too small to socially distance people and therefore we cannot guarantee your safety. We would not be able to have food and drink in the church (due to having to wear masks) and that would be no fun! The church is so disappointed about this. You are invited to the Seend Carol Service on Thurs. 23rd December at 7.00 (which I am leading). Seend Church is bigger and people can socially distance there. Let’s hope we can all be back to normal for 2022!! Every blessing for Christmas and for the New Year.

Stay up to date with the latest news from Bulkington


The Parish Council now has all it's documents in a dedicated area - please see above 'documents' for agendas, minutes, budgets and policies etc.

For general maintenance issues (potholes, blocked gullies, street lighting etc) reports can now be entered onto the ‘MyWilts’ system.   ‘MyWilts’ is the new way to report issues to Wiltshire Council and replaces the MyWiltshire app.   ‘MyWilts’ is a live system which allows the public to log maintenance requests.  


Once registered, users will receive automatic progress reports on their case.


It is vital that general maintenance issues are logged onto the ‘MyWilts’, as it provides the most efficient and accurate method of tracking requests on our highway network. This link will take you the ‘MyWilts’ site: MyWilts online reporting - Wiltshire Council


The Defibrillator is located outside The Well in Bulkington. 


In an emergency ring 999 and give the location of the equipment as "The Well, Bulkington". The emergency services will provide you with the code to access the defibrillator (as well as despatching an ambulance). The equipment is user friendly and a video is available to view below



In the event of a break-in or suspicious activity in the village, please report it to the Police immediately - it only takes a moment to make a report online: an emergency, or if you need urgent police assistance, you should always dial 999. You can also report suspicious activity by contacting the police in confidence on 0800 789 321.

The advice to stay safe is to lock doors, don’t leave keys in the car, remove valuables and report everything straight away. Police are investigating the recent break-ins using CCTV footage and villager reports and will be supporting us with regular Police Patrols.  

The police advise that an active Neighbourhood watch scheme is also a good deterrent to crime. If there is any appetite for re-instating the Neighbourhood watch scheme in Bulkington and there are active volunteers to run it, the Parish Council can assist you in forming a group.
