The Parish of Breamore, earlier called 'Brumore', which possibly meant a moor where broom grows.
The uniqueness of Breamore means that much of the area covered by the Parish is not only subject to normal planning laws but there are a large number of listed buildings all requiring special consents for any work which may alter the nature or style of the building, its structure and the interior layout.
Within the Parish is the Marsh and River Avon, both are listed as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Other parts of the Parish fall within the Cranbourne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs - Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The River valley has been designated as an Environmentally Sensative Area (ESA) by MAFF.
There are also 127.5 hectares of Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC's) in the Parish.
