The village of Sherston is situated near the River Avon, in the Northwest corner of Wiltshire. It's two miles from the old Fosse Way and five miles to the west of Malmesbury and 5 miles south west of Tetbury. "The first mention of Sherston or Scorranstone is found when Ethelred, Earldorman held a meeting at Gloucester in 896 AD.
The Romans almost certainly occupied the settlement much earlier as remains of ancient Roman earthworks have been found. Also traces of a large Roman villa built in approximately 350AD have been excavated in a field on the outskirts of the village". (courtesy of Cilla Liddington) Today, Sherston is a thriving working village with access to many places of interest on foot, by bike or within short driving distance by car.
