    Purton – 7 Quirky Facts

    1. Signs of Life
      The earliest signs of human settlement in the area are a 50 BC Iron Age hill fort, Ringsbury Camp. The first written record dates an event in 735 AD when the Saxon king of Mercia, Ecgfrith gave 35 animal hides from Purton to the Abbey in nearby Malmesbury. Royal hunting grounds stretched out north of Purton covering 30,000 acres.
    2. Doomed!
      According to the Domesday book of 1086, Purton consisted of; 20 villagers, 12 smallholders, 13 cottagers, 5 slaves, 1 burgess, 24 ploughlands that were worked by 21 plough teams (two of those belonging to the local lord of the manor), 60 acres of meadow. Woodland, 1 mill and had an annual value of 5 shillings.
    3. Uncivil War
      The discovery of a cannonball and local place names such as Battlewell, Battle Lake and Battlelake Farm suggest Purton might have been close to the site of a battle in the English Civil War. The area was certainly well travelled by both Parliamentary and Royalist troops. Other historians argue the names are more likely to be linked to a Saxon battle as the area would have been on the border separating the kingdoms of Wessex and Mercia.
    4. Lady in the Chapel
      In 1872 the church of St Mary was undergoing refurbishment at a cost of £2,500. During the work, a walled up chapel was uncovered that contained the skeleton of a woman.
    5. Purton Waters
      For centuries locals had drunk the water from a local site known as ‘The Salt Hole’ which they believed to have curative powers. During the 18th and 19th centuries most of the local doctors and gentry gave no credit to the tales and Dr Samuel Sadler who came to own the land filled the salt hole with soil. However, after contracting an illness and using the waters to restore his health Sadler built a pump and created ‘Purton Spa’ charging visitors to bathe and drink the waters. Whether he really believed in the waters or saw a business opportunity following the success of cities like Bath and Harrogate are open to debate.
    6. Second World War
      During WWII the area had to prepare against a much-feared German invasion. Purton was in an area that formed the ‘Red Line’ set out by General Headquarters, which was laid out with anti-tank defences and traps to halt enemy vehicles. RAF Blakehill Farm was a command station and US troops were based at Blaydon and would attend dances in Purton.
    7. Fancy Seeing You Here!
      Two famous faces to have come from Purton are the actress and singer Billie Piper and zoologist Desmond Morris. Billie had a teenage pop-career before joining the cast of Dr Who and marrying DJ/presenter Chris Evans. Desmond Morris a celebrated human behaviourist was also born in Purton.
