Brinkworth

3.7
Brinkworth is a village and civil parish in northern Wiltshire, England. The village lies between Royal Wootton Bassett and Malmesbury, about 1mi north of the M4 motorway and 9mi west of Swindon.The west end of Brinkworth village is Causeway End. The civil parish of Brinkworth includes the hamlets of Braydon Side, Callow Hill, The Common, and the tithing of Grittenham, a rural community to the south of the village of Brinkworth.Much of Brinkworth village is a linear settlement along the east-west B4042, extending for some 1+1/2mi. The village is sometimes described as the longest in England although others such as Meopham, Kent make the same claim.The village stands on a ridge overlooking the Dauntsey Vale to the south. The Woodbridge Brook, a tributary of the Bristol Avon, passes to the north of the village and another tributary of the Avon, the Brinkworth Brook, passes to the south. The Thunder Brook joins the Brinkworth Brook north of Grittenham.HistoryBrinkworth Manor was given to Malmesbury Abbey by the nobleman Leofsige, sometime before the Domesday Book survey. The abbey held the land until the Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time it was granted to William Stumpe. It then passed into the family of the Earl of Berkshire and Suffolk, until it was sold privately between 1858 and 1960. It is likely that the other estate of Brinkworth mentioned in the Domesday, that held by Tochi, survived through the ensuing centuries as separate, smaller estates within the northern section of the parish (probably including Clitchbury Farm, Waldron's Farm and Whitehouse Farm). Grittenham is mentioned separately in the survey and was held at the time by Malmesbury Abbey. Following the dissolution it was granted to John Aycliffe, from whom it descended to the Lords Holland, who sold it privately at the end of the nineteenth century.
