    Maiden Newton – 5 Quirky Facts

    1. Early History
      The earliest signs of settlement in the area include Iron Age burial mounds. Digs around the mounds have uncovered jewellery dating to the same era. There is still clear evidence of lynchets above Maiden Newton rail embankment. These were a stepped method of planting crops. The Romans also lived in the area with a large villa having been unearthed in the 1790’s.
    2. Doom & Gloom
      Unlike many larger locations in the region (we’re looking at you Bristol!), Maiden Newton was featured in the Domesday Book of 1086. At the time it was recorded as having 2 mills, 26 families, 7 arable fields and 18 acres of meadow. The chief landowner at the time was the impressively named Waleran the Hunter.
    3. The White Horse
      Maiden Newton once had 6 pubs. The most famous of the these was The White Horse. It was featured in two of Thomas Hardy’s works; Tess of the D’Urbervilles and The Interlopers (from the Wessex Tales). There is no record of why the pub was called the ‘White Horse’ as the town doesn’t have one of the large white horses that are a common sight in the region. It didn’t have a castle either but did have a pub named after one.
    4. Kings
      While there are no records of a grand house at the time, there must have been a significant home of some form as King John visited Maiden Newton between 1204 and 1213. In 1303 King Edward I who stayed in the town overnight and George III brought his daughter with him when he came to view the Roman road and villa uncovered in the 1790s.
    5. How Old?
      St Mary’s church has certainly seen its share of history, one of the doors is believed to date back to the Medieval era and claimed to be the oldest door still in use in England. There are also marks on the exterior of the building which are the scares of musket balls from the English Civil War. In World War II the church became a target again and was hit by a bullet from a German aircraft.
