West Tisbury Village

The Wiltshire parish of West Tisbury can be found nestled in a forgotten corner of the Cranborne Chase AONB at the head waters of the Nadder Valley next to the Vale of Wardour. This lovely rural parish is comprised of hamlets and farms with its eastern boundary ensconced in the village of Tisbury.

The parish is seven miles north east of Shaftesbury in Dorset and four miles east of East Knoyle, comprising the hamlets of Hatch to the south, Newtown in the centre and Tuckingmill to the east bound to edge of Tisbury. The parish is marked to the south by the River Sem which itself lies just south of the Salisbury to Exeter railway line.

The parish economy is dominated by both arable and live stock farming which includes the land and grounds of the Pythouse estate, however improving digital infrastructure also allows numerous small businesses to flourish within this community alongside traditional tradesmen. West Tisbury became a parish in its own right in 1835, when East Tisbury, West Tisbury and Wardour were divided into separate poor law parishes. In 1975 the parish was made up of 2, 782 acres and as of 2011 census the population was 573.
