Location Information

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first recorded reference to Kineton was in 969, when Saxon King Edgar granted some land here to a trusted counsellor.

The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Kington. On the outskirts of the village, at the foot of Pittern Hill, are the remains of the earthworks of a motte-and-bailey castle, known as King John’s Castle, so called because it is believed that King John held a Court Leet there. Kineton gave its name to the area of south-east Warwickshire known as Kineton Hundred.
