Hinton Parva

Hinton Parva, also known as Little Hinton, is a village in the unitary authority of Swindon in Wiltshire, England. Hinton Parva was a separate parish until 1934, and is now in the civil parish of Bishopstone.

The village was taken over by the War Department during World War 2 (1943) and the inhabitants evicted but allowed to return after hostilities had ceased, unlike nearby Imber which is still in military hands.

The Norman parish church of St Swithun's is a Grade I listed building. An area around the church was designated a conservation area in 1990.[1]
