Milston is a hamlet and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, approximately 10 miles (16 km) north of Salisbury and separated from neighbouring Durrington by the River Avon. The parish consists of two hamlets: Milston and Brigmerston, along with farm buildings on Salisbury Plain. The population in 2011 was 130 – the same as in 1861.
Milston hamlet contains a small Grade II* listed church dedicated to St Mary, erected in the 13th and 14th centuries and restored in 1806 and 1906. The single bell in the bellcote dates from about 1209 and the font is probably from the 13th century. It is one of seven Church of England parishes covered by the Avon River Team ministry.
Milston was the birthplace of the writer and politician Joseph Addison (1672–1719), whose father Lancelot Addison, writer and cleric, was rector of Milston from 1670 to 1681, when the rectory burnt down.
