Welcome to Hullavington

Hullavington is first recorded as Hunlavintone in the Domesday Book of 1086. The place-name means 'the town of Hunlaf's people'.

The population at the beginning of the nineteenth century was 395 (1801 census), rising to 823 in 1901 and was 1,247 in 2001.

It has a garage, shop, cafe/tap room and a church, St Mary Magdalene, and a village hall. The hall was opened by James Gray, the MP for North Wiltshire, after the previous one burnt down because of an electrical fault.

There is also a Church of England nursery and primary school which has about 160 pupils and is headed by Lynsey McGinn. A number of children attend from Buckley Barracks. The army often provides entertainment and support for the school and the village.

Several activities other than regular church services are held in the Church which is situated in the centre of the village.  There is a recorder group on Tuesday evenings, a well attended coffee morning and Little Lights on Friday mornings.
Many community activities take place in the Village Hall including: concerts, fitness classes, line dancing, art and choral classes, films, private parties, meetings and many other activities.
