About the Parish

Earliest Settlement

'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.

Roman Influence

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.

A Thriving and Growing Community

The Parish of Blunsdon has been one of the fastest growing in the Borough of Swindon. At the 2001 Census, 2250 dwellings were registered. We now have a population of about 10,000! There are not many Parishes that grow at that rate so there is a lot for us to do!
