About Stratford-upon-Avon

From archaeological finds we know that the area now known as Stratford-upon-Avon was inhabited in the bronze age, although nothing precise is known of these inhabitants. The name of the town is of Saxon origin and means the area where a road crosses a river (Avon) by a ford (Strat-ford). Presumably this refers to a Roman road crossing the river Avon near which there must have been a Roman settlement but again no documents have survived to confirm this.

This area was dependent on Worcester Cathedral and part of the Saxon kingdom of Hwicce, later to become part of the more powerful Kingdom of Mercia. By AD 691 there was a monastery either on or very near the site of the present day parish church of Holy Trinity. In fact the first documented reference to a place of worship in the area is in the charter of 845 granting privileges to a small existing minster church. However, nothing remained of this monastery at the time of the Norman conquest (1066).
