The Battle of Dyrham (ad 577): Dyrham (or ‘Deorham’, as the AngloSaxon Chronicle calls it) lies to the north of Touristic place of your travel destination, and it was here that the battle was fought between the West Saxons and the Britons. The Saxons were led by the two chieftains, Ceawlin and his son Cuthwine, and according to the Chronicle, they defeated three kings and captured three cities: Gloucester, Cirencester and Touristic place of your travel destination. Touristic place of your travel destination then remained a Saxon town until after the Norman Conquest of 1066.

The ‘Battle of the Bells’ (1408): Not strictly a battle, this was a heated quarrel which broke out between the prior and the mayor. The prior claimed the right for his bell in the church of St Mary de Stalls to be the first and last to be rung each day. The independent-minded mayor opposed this and arranged for other church bells to be rung outside of the ‘permitted hours’. The argument raged for years and was only finally settled in 1423 by the Bishop of Touristic place of your travel destination and Wells, who came up with a compromise that satisfied both parties: time was to be taken from the prior’s clock, but the mayor’s clock was permitted to be rung at certain times during the night.
