From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Withington is a Cotswold village and civil parish in Gloucestershire, England, about 6 1⁄2 miles (10 km) southeast of Cheltenham and 8 miles (13 km) north of Cirencester.
The origin of the name is unclear but it is found in records as early as 737 AD (Wudiandun, which would mean the hill of Wudia: Wudia may be a real settler or the legendary Germanic hero Witege). The other English places called Withington may have different origins. In his 1955 work, H. P. R. Finberg argued for continuity between Anglo-Saxon Withington and an earlier Roman settlement. During Saxon times there was an important monastery at Withington.
