The castle which gave this Wiltshire village its name no longer exists, but it was originally built on a hill to the north-west of the Manor House. Castle Hill was probably a human settlement in Neolithic times, as it is of some strategic importance, with superb natural defences. It was abandoned by the Celts after the Roman invasion, but was re-occupied by the Saxons who made it into a hill fort around 600 AD. The ‘Castell of Cumbe’ was built on the site by Reginald de Dunstanville in 1140, it is thought. Castle Combe grew as a result of the wool trade, as did other Cotswolds villages. In its centre there is the Market Cross, with the old water pump close to it. Of course, Castle Combe also has a racing circuit which opened in 1950, shortly after Silverstone.
