    Dinton – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Trust-worthy Neighbours
      It’s nice to have ‘well-to-do’ neighbours, Dinton has no less than four properties all owned and managed by the National Trust; Dinton Park, Hyde’s House, Lawe’s Cottage and Little Clarendon. Little Clarendon was owned by the Rev George Engleheart who had a passion for daffodils, so much so that he dedicated much of his life to breading new types of daffs in fields attached to the property and won the Victoria Medal of Honour from the Royal Horticultural Society.
    2. Early Dinton
      The remains of an Iron Age hill fort, Wick Ball Camp can be found in the grounds of the impressive Dinton House, Neolithic and Bronze age implements have also been found in the area around Dinton which sits in the Nadder Valley.
    3. Take That Bristol!
      While greater cities like Liverpool, Bristol and even London didn’t make it into the Domesday Book of 1086, Dinton was recorded and considered to be worth 20 pounds. This would suggest the village had greater wealth/importance than many much larger locations. Dinton consisted of 37 households made up of 21 villagers, 10 smallholders, 4 slaves, and 2 burgesses. There were 20 acres of meadow, 20 acres of woodland, pastureland and 2 mills.
    4. Victorian Knees Up
      On the 28th of June, 1838 Wm Wyndham Esq, the then owner of Dinton House threw a party in celebration of Queen Victoria’s coronation. Although Wyndham himself wasn’t present, he arranged for tents to be erected in the grounds and food prepared for entire village. “At five o’clock were on the move to a spacious marquee erected in the centre of his Park.” “Good old English fare – roast beef, plum pudding and strong beer” was served and locals “…partook of the entrainment which was abundantly supplied”. “The manly game of cricket was going on in one part of the Park – boys were playing foot-ball in another” while “in front of the marquee several parties were dancing” “…and when the hour of parting came, they separated to their respective homes highly gratified.”
    5. Grim’s Ditch
      To the north of the village lies Grim’s Ditch. Not much is known about the ancient landmark that runs from Wiltshire all the way to Somerset. It is believed ‘Grim’ was a Saxon name for Odin, the Norse god of war and magic and most powerful of all the gods. The first Viking leader who went on to discover Britain, Ragnar Lothbrok, claimed to be related to Odin.
    6. Military History
      Much of the area was used as training stations in both World Wars and there was a large RAF munitions base created in the former quarries at Dinton that supplied much of the stone used in Salisbury Cathedral and many of the homes in Dinton. In World War II the grounds of Dinton House were used by the US Air Force and there was a military train line that connected the village with Fovant.
