Breedon on the Hill

Breedon on the Hill

Breedon on the Hill is a village (population 891 according to the 1991 census) at the foot of a hill.

On the hill however is the Priory Church of St Mary and St Hardulph. (Who?) Below the church is an erstwhile limestone quarry, which has created a cliff on one side of the hill (and removed half of the original hill).  The official church website has some interesting history.

In brief: the site was an Iron Age hill fort, a monastery from about 676 CE, and an Augustinian Priory from the 12th Century.
