This small parish lies on the Wiltshire border and includes the hamlets of Redenham and Ragged Appleshaw. Granted the right to two annual fairs in 1658, Appleshaw became a rival to the great Weyhill sheep fair. The Salisbury Journal in 1801 reports that 15,000 sheep were sold at Appleshaw - a reduction on the previous year's total.
