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 II (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]
