About Us

The Marden Vale Team Ministry is part of the Salisbury Diocese of the Church of England.

It comprises the villages of Derry Hill, Bremhill and Foxham and the town of Calne.  These are set in attractive countryside in the North of Wiltshire.   The team was formed in 2010 and is made up of the parishes of Derry Hill, Bremhill, Foxham being joined with the parish of Calne and Blacklands.

Calne is situated astride the A4 main road to the west of the Marlborough Downs.  Derry Hill lies further along the A4, to the west and the two very rural villages of Bremhill and Foxham are spread out to the north.  There is a good bus service to Chippenham and Marlborough and there are excellent rail links from Chippenham (6 miles) to London and the West Country and the M4 motorway to the north (12miles).  Salisbury lies 25 miles to the south.  BowoodHouse is situated next to Derry Hill.

There is much open farmland and many of the village inhabitants are still employed in farming and other rural activities.  However, many of the population commute to work in Swindon, Bath, Bristol and London.  There are many activities and social clubs thriving in all parts of the Benefice.  More information about what goes on in the rural areas around the town of Calne can be found by visiting www.calnerural.org.
