    6 Quirky Facts About Tidworth

    1. North/South Divide
      Tidworth was originally two separate villages divided by the River Bourne. The river marks the Wiltshire/Hampshire border and at one time the town was split into two separate districts, one in Hampshire, one in Wiltshire, until a single parish was created in 1992.
    2. A Bit Blunt
      Singer James Blunt was born in Tidworth. Part of a military family, he served in the Life Guards before going on to find pop fame, “You’re beautiful….”
    3. Ashes 2 Ashes
      Also born in Tidworth, John, Charles and George Studd were three brothers who were educated at Eton and Cambridge and during the late 1800s were among the most famous cricketers in England. Charles played in the first ever test against Australia which saw the creation of the Ashes and John carried the British flag at the 1908 London Olympics. They all went on to have illustrious careers, John became the Lord Mayor of London in 1928. Remarkably there were four more brothers, and all seven played for the MCC at some point.
    4. MOD
      Originally the site of an Iron Age hill fort, Tidworth is best known for its association with the army. Being a garrison town, a large proportion of the town have at some point worked with or for the Ministry of Defence, either as serving personnel or in support roles. The garrison is mostly involved with Salisbury Plain, the MOD’s largest training site. Tidworth Camp, Swinton Barracks and other local camps now form one of the UK’s first ‘super garrisons’.
    5. Des Res
      Tidworth was once said to be the most desirable postcode according to the Royal Mail. It has a polo club (Prince Charles is the president), very good schools (one even has a radio station broadcasting locally) and has long had an exceptionally low crime rate. Between 1990 and 2004 only one major crime was recorded.
    6. Drummer Of Tidworth
      One local legend (and one of such note that it made it into Samuel Pepys diary) tells the tale a of rich local landowner, John Mompesson the owner of ‘Tedworth’ House in 1661 who came across a drummer, playing for coins. Mompesson took exception to the ‘beggar’ and took him to court for obtaining money by false pretences. The court ruled in the rich man’s favour and with no means to pay the fine, the vagrant’s drum was given to Mompesson as settlement. Not long after, Mompesson’s house became plagued by nocturnal drumming noises, which many said were a gypsy curse laid by the roaming drummer.
