Who gives a dam


Hullavington lies on the edge of the  so called Stone Belt which forms the Wiltshire Cotswolds. This is Jurassic geology  that was  laid down between c135 million and 200 million years ago when the land that, today, is Hullavington was much  closer to the Equator and  at the bottom of the sea . To the west  of Hullavington is the Great Oolite  limestone which  contains the  free stone that is  so easy to work into fine quality  blocks. Many of  the grand buildings of Bath, Cheltenham etc are made from  this stone.   Here in Hullavington we are actually sat astride the Cornbrash  and Oxford clays. Cornbrash is a mix of  'rag stone' and clay.   The brash/clay boundary seems to wiggle its way through the  village and you can have a well drained garden sitting on the brash, yet only a street away there is clay.  Nearly all of the older houses in the village are made from this ragstone  rubble  that has been quarried from locations around the village. These old quarries are still visible  and are mainly to the West   of the village. .............(more)


The highest point in the parish is 126m (400 ft)  above sea level  .....(more)

History & Pre-History

There is possibly an  Anglo Saxon Charter that records part of the boundary of Hullavington. If it exists, it would  the first historical record for Hullavington.  Apart from this, history begins  for our village  in 1086 with it being recorded in  Domesday. According to Domesday Earl Harold, who became  King Harold the last of the Anglo  Saxon Kings, held Hullavington.  

Various articles on Hullavington's history from Domesday  up to more recent times can be found on the following web pages:

As regards the pre-history, the  archaeological  record  indicates  there were at least 2   Romano British settlements in the parish. A geophysical survey indicates one  of these settlements is quite large with a complex arrangement of  enclosures and buildings.

Other pre-historic finds include  an Iron Age coin, a  rare and fine example of  a decorated Bronze Age spear head,  microliths (small flints that were originally embedded into wooden or bone mounts)  of the   Mesolithic period which spanned the time from 10,000BC to about 4,000BC. So  people have been  visiting and living in Hullavington for a long long time.
