The site of the village was inhabited and the surrounding area used for agriculture at least as far back as the medieval period. Crop marks visible from the air suggest that the site may have been inhabited as far back as Roman times, however. An ordnance survey map from 1866 shows that there was a blacksmith's workshop in the village at that time. During World War II , various defences were established near the village.
There is a memorial stone on the site of the old drift entrance. The plaque is inscribed
The site of the former East Chevington Drift Mine. This 5 tonne limestone boulder was preserved from East Chevington Open Cast Coal Site which worked 1982–1994 and now stands on the site of East Chevington Drift Mine which operated 1882–1962.
