How to find us:


Lych-gate on Church Hill

Kington Magna is situated just to the north of the A30 about 8 miles west of Shaftesbury. (See ‘Where we are’ page).  Perched high on the hillside above the village, All Saints’ Church sits in a prominent position overlooking the beautiful Blackmore Vale and can be seen from miles around.  The Church is located, appropriately, near the top of Church Hill, with a small parking area a little further up the hill from the Lych gate.  If necessary, there is overflow parking opposite (on the cemetery side only please) of the entrance to Worthy Farm.
