Latest reviews | Events in Kington St Michael | 10 Places to Stay

The village of Kington St Michael finds itself ideally placed in modern Wiltshire. It is just three miles north of Chippenham and only a short distance south of the M4. The village was once part of lands given to Glastonbury Abbey by King Athelstan and was the site of a Benedictine nunnery. The priory has long since gone but parts of the old buildings now form sections of a farmhouse. A Neolithic chambered long barrow at Lanhill and an early Bronze Age bowl barrow at Barrow Farm are evidence of prehistoric settlement in the area, although the earliest recorded history dates back to 934 when the manor was still known as Kington. The village retains its all-important English charm and boasts some fine buildings. The charming Lytes Almshouses were established in 1675 by Isaac Lyte, a local lad who became an Alderman of London, to house the bachelors of the Parishes of Kington St Michael and Kington Langley.
