What is Shipton Bellinger?
Shipton Bellinger is a village on the Hampshire/ Wiltshire borders, in England, about 7 miles from the Stonehenge World Heritage site. We are close to the small towns of Tidworth and Amesbury, and are on the edge of Salisbury Plain. Our location within Hampshire is roughly indicated on the map extract above (click on it for finer detail). In the "About Shipton" section we have described the village in more detail, it's past, present and future, and also reproduced the remarkable local history of the village.
