Old Sodbury is a village in the Cotswolds, close to the town of Chipping Sodbury and the village of Little Sodbury. It is “Old” Sodbury because it is much older than Chipping Sodbury. In the Domesday Book (1086) it is listed as Sopeberie coming from the Anglo-Saxon meaning ‘Soppa’s fort,’ which could refer to the Iron Age fort on a hill close to the village. This fort was utilized by the Romans and later the Saxons. In the 12th century Old Sodbury was granted a charter to hold a market and an annual fair and when the market was held, the owner of the land, William Crassus, sited it at a little distance from his manor; it was then that Chipping Sodbury came into existence. The market and two fairs (one a mop fair) are still held today.
