Sherston is a village and civil parish about 5 miles west of Malmesbury in Wiltshire, England. The population in 2001 was 1418, increasing at the 2011 census to 1,639.GovernanceAn electoral ward with the same name exists. The ward starts in the west at Luckington passes by Sharston and ends near but not in Marlborough. The total population of the ward at the 2011 census was 4,822.HistoryThe earliest surviving record of Sherston, then called Scorranstone, is an Anglo-Saxon one from the time of Ethelred, who was an Ealdorman of Mercia. Evidence of Roman survives in the parish in the form of ramparts and ditches in a field called Pennymead, which is now the recreation ground. Remains of a Roman villa, built around AD 350, have also been discovered. The Fosseway, a major Roman road, passes nearby.In 1016 Cnut the Great and his army fought a West Saxon army in a two-day battle on the hills around Sherston. John Rattlebone of Sherston was the leader of the local militia and is now a symbol of Sherston and its community. His name is celebrated in a local pub, the Rattlebone Inn. In 1511 a fire destroyed most of Sherston.
