Nestling beneath the Marlborough Downs and Ridgeway National Trail, Wroughton is a large village with around 8500 residents, situated to the south of Swindon in Wiltshire.

With easy access from the M4, the village, which has seen significant growth over the last 15 years, has been continually inhabited from the early mists of time; Ancient Britons, Romans and Saxons all lived here.

The Iron Age hill fort at Barbury Castle was first occupied over 2500 years ago and was then in use during the Roman occupation. Today, Barbury Castle Country Park is a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

Forming the first tier of local government, Wroughton Parish Council has 15 elected members. Wroughton Parish Council works hard to improve the life and environment in our neighbourhood. We hope that this website provides you with useful information relating to the Council and local facilities and groups.

If you are interested in the Parish Council or would like further information please contact the Parish Office.
