Longbridge Deverill is a village and civil parish about 2.5 miles (4.0 km) south of Warminster in Wiltshire, England. It is on the A350 primary route which connects the M4 motorway and west Wiltshire with Poole, Dorset.
The parish is in the Deverill valley which carries the upper waters of the River Wylye. It includes the village of Crockerton and the hamlet of Hill Deverill; these are collectively known as the Lower Deverills (the Upper Deverills being the upstream villages of Brixton Deverill, Monkton Deverill and Kingston Deverill).
The village falls in the 'Warminster Without' electoral ward. This ward starts in the north at Upton Scudamore, avoids Warminster then stretches south through Longbridge Deverell to end at Kingston Deverill. The total population of the ward taken at the 2011 census was 4,163.
The Church of England parish church of Saints Peter and Paul is partly Norman. The Church was consecrated by Thomas Becket. It has memorials to the Thynne family including John Thynne (1515-1580) who built Longleat House.
Longbridge Deverill has a public house, the George Inn.
