Bratton is a village about 2.5 miles E of Westbury and 25 miles NE of Salisbury. The church lies to the S of the village and is largely Perpendicular in date, although it possibly replaced an earlier building. The chancel was rebuilt in 1854 by George Gilbert Scott. The only 12thc carving is the font which has been over-restored.


The Domesday Survey does not mention the vill. Bratton was a tithing of Westbury until 1894, when it became a separate civil parish.





The church was restored in 1860 by Thomas Henry Wyatt.
