From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hellidon is a village and civil parish about 5 miles (8 km) south-west of Daventry in Northamptonshire, England. The parish area is about 1,600 acres (650 ha). The village lies 520 feet (160 m)–590 feet (180 m) above sea level on the north face of an ironstone ridge. Its highest point is 670 feet (200 m) above sea level, at Windmill Hill about 0.5 miles (800 m) south-east of the village.

The Domesday Book of 1086 does not record Hellidon. In the 12th century a manor of four hides at “Eliden” (Hellidon) was recorded as being of the fee of Berkhamsted. From the 13th century Hellidon had two manors: Baskervilles and Giffords. The present manor house at the northwest end of the village is on the site of the former Baskervilles Manor. Giffords Manor was on the northeast side of the village, and there are substantial rectilinear earthworks where the house is said to have stood.
