Brockworth is a large village in Gloucestershire, England, situated on the old Roman road that connects the City of Gloucester with Barnwood, Hucclecote and Cirencester. The population taken at the 2011 census was 7,387. Since the mid-19th century, Brockworth has been known locally for the annual rolling of Double Gloucester cheese down Cooper's Hill. During World War II its Gloster Aircraft Company produced the famous Hawker Hurricane fighter, and following the war it gained renewed fame for producing several notable aircraft, including Britain's first jet aircraft, which was test flown here. It is also the birthplace of actor, comedian and writer Simon Pegg.GovernanceAn electoral ward of the same name exists in Tewkesbury Borough. The population and area of this ward are identical to that shown above.HistoryThe name Brockworth is derived from the Saxon "wurthin" for enclosure and "broc" for brook. Settlement is believed to have occurred around 600AD after the defeat of the Gloucester-based Romano British at the Battle of Dyrham in 577AD. Older – Roman – remains have been found locally but they indicate an estate rather than village, and the Saxon-derived name also suggests the first settlers were Saxons.Plan your trip to Brockworth and other United Kingdom destinations using our handy United Kingdom route planner.
