Broad Hinton is a small village about 5 miles SW of Swindon. The church dates from the 13thc with a 15thc W tower and a chancel that was rebuilt in 1879. It contains two carved, Norman stones set into the E wall of the nave.


The Domesday Book records that in 1066 the manor was held by Wulfgar; in 1086 it passed to Gilbert of Bretteville and Ranulph. The Wase family held Broad Hinton until 1365, when it was sold to William Wroughton. The Wroughton family held Broad Hinton until 1628.
