Welcome to Ettington Village
It seems there is a link between doorstep sellers and burglaries in the area and the police would like your help. See here.
Ettington lies between the junction of the A422 and the A429 to the West and the junction of the A422 with the 'Fosse Way' to the East. The village is believed to have been a Saxon settlement as well as a Roman encampment. The Shirley Family were recorded as Lords of the Manor in the Domesday Book. There were Quaker Meetings in 1664 and the Meeting House, built in 1684, still remains. The mention of a Parish Priest in the Domesday Book indicates that the Holy Trinity Church existed at that time and it was restored in 1825.
Dr William Croft, composer of sacred music and later the organist at Westminster Abbey was born in Ettington in 1677.
Ettington was formerly known as 'Eatington' and this name is still used in some maps, notably Microsoft Auto Route.
The village now has a thriving school, church and a new Community Centre, which replaces the old village hall.
