A project to provide a fuller picture of each community is in progress, working on the larger communities first.

|Map of the Civil Parish of Erlestoke:|
Erlestoke is a parish in the middle of Wiltshire, approximately eight miles south west of Devizes and six miles north west of Westbury. The parish is long and thin and from north to south stretches for around four and a half miles; it is only a mile from west to east. To the east of the parish is Great Cheverell and to the west Coulston and Edington. The parish of Erlestoke can roughly be divided into three; one third is chalk, one third Kimmeridge Clay and the other Upper Green Sand. Erlestoke did not receive ecclesiastical parish status until 1877.

The Victoria History of Wiltshire (opens in new window) is a partnership between local authorities and the Institute of Historical Research at London University. The History of Wiltshire is now the largest county history in the country and is still growing. The volumes are divided between general and topographical with Volumes One to Five covering subjects such as prehistory, ecclesiastical, economic and political history. The Volumes from Six onwards are topographical and will ultimately provide a comprehensive and systematic history of every single town and parish in the county.
