The civil parish includes the hamlet of Deptford, formerly a separate manor. Today Deptford is the junction of two primary roads, the A303 (London to the southwest) and the A36 (Southampton to Bristol). In 1934 half of Fisherton parish was added to Wylye, including the small village of Fisherton Delamere.
There is no school in the parish; the nearest primary school is at Codford. A National School was built near the church in 1873, superseding an earlier building. In 1938 children aged 11 and over were transferred to Wilton and the school closed in 1973 owing to the small number of pupils.
The parish has a village hall.
The Salisbury branch line was built through the Wyle valley in 1856 by the Great Western Railway, passing close to the south of Wylye village. Wylye station was sited where the railway crossed the road to Dinton. The station was closed in 1955 when local passenger services were withdrawn; the line continues in use as part of the Wessex Main Line.
