Castle Eaton Village
In 2021 Castle Eaton won Wiltshire’s “Best kept small village”.
We are situated in a predominately agricultural area at the northernmost point of Swindon Borough.
At the 2011 census, there was a population of 231.
Part of the village is in a conservation area, where many of the buildings are built of local stone and date from 1600’s to 1800’s. This gives Castle Eaton the look and feel of a small Cotswold village.
Castle Eaton has a very popular public house, The Red Lion, and a beautiful church, St Mary the Virgin, dating from the 13th Century.
