'Blunsdon' - the hill belonging to Blunt. Rising from the mists above the forests and marshes on the plain to Castle Hill, a univallate Iron Age fort, where our earliest ancestors fortified and built a settlement.
Much later the Romans drove their Ermin Street out of Corinium Dobunnorum (Cirencester) towards Durocornovium (Wanborough) and on towards Venta Bulgarum (Winchester) in the south and Calleva Atrebatum (Silchester) in the east. This crossed the ancient byway, Lady Lane/Broadbush, now more commonly recognised as the B4019.
The 2015 office National Statistics records a population of 2201, with the proposed development in the Parish this will increase significantly over the next few years. The Parish of Blunsdon also includes part of Kingsdown.
There are three within the Parish, The Methodist Church, St Leonards and The Baptist Church on Blunsdon Hill.
