Etymology

The name Longparish was first used in the mid-16th-century and is derived from a nickname for the "long parish" of Middleton — consisting of the settlements of Middleton, East Aston, West Aston and Forton — which stretched some 4 miles along the River Test. The parish of Middleton was first recorded as "Middletune" in the Domesday Survey of 1086.

Landmarks
