Broad Hinton - one of six
Broad Hinton - one of six
The village of Broad Hinton is one of the six in Wiltshire that can show a White Horse, carved at some time in the past on the ridge to the south-east of the village. Broad Hinton sits within a triangle of roads with the apex pointing west and the A4361 Swindon - Avebury road forming its eastern, base, side. The church of St (Saint) Peter ad Vincula (in chains) is situated on the south-western side of the village and dates from Norman times. The font at some time in the past has been painted and was once locked against witches. The church also has memorials to the Wroughton family and to Francis Glanville who was killed at Bridgwater during the Civil War. Time taken not available.
