Battle of Dyrham
The Battle of Dyrham was fought in the lands hereabouts in 577, between West Saxons and Britons, and it is believed that the battle centred on Hinton Hill to the east of the village. The battle marked a key moment in British history, allowing the Saxons to reach the Severn Estuary, and splitting the Britons of south-west from those of what would become Wales.
