A quick history

The history of Carterton stretches back to the 12th century, and in Medieval times the town’s main street was also one of the busiest roads in the country, linking the port of Southampton with the farming Cotswolds region. Over the centuries, land ownership changed hands in Carterton several times with the land eventually sold off in plots.

Over the decades Carterton became known as a gardening town, with grapes and tomatoes grown in the town eventually sold at Covent Garden Market. During the Second World War, the town’s army base Brize Norton grew quickly and today it is the largest RAF station in the UK.
