Brixton Deverill is a small village 4 miles S of Warminster. The church has a 13thc chancel arch and a short W tower of the 13thc and 15thc. The only Romanesque carving is the font that was brought from Imber Church when that village became a military training ground in the Second World War.


The Domesday Book records that in 1066 the village was held by Brictric, son of Algar. In 1086 the holding passed to the Abbey of Our Lady of Bec, in Normandy, and it had a value of £12. In 1140s Brixton Deverill was held by the King's College of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas in Cambridge, founded in 1441 by King Henry VI.





The church was restored in 1730 and 1862.
