History of Steventon The priory

There has been a settlement on Steventon's current site for over a thousand years.

The Domesday book, the national survey of 1086 commissioned by King William I, lists Steventon as being a settlement of up to 300 inhabitants covering approximately 2400 acres - almost exactly the same area of the current village.  Since 2010 our village area has been expanded by new developments see here

There are two publications giving more history of the village: The Story of Steventon and Steventon Life the proceeds go to the Church of St. Michael and all Angels in Steventon. Unfortunately both are now out of print.
