Durrington is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, about 10mi north of Salisbury, 30mi south of Swindon and 2mi northeast of Stonehenge. It is on the east of Salisbury Plain, the largest remaining area of chalk grassland in northwest Europe. The parish includes the military settlement of Larkhill, 1.5mi to the west, and the small village of Strangways, 1.0mi to the southwest.Durrington has a long history, dating back to the Neolithic era. Two ancient sites lie in the parish: Durrington Walls and Woodhenge. The village is in the Upper Avon Valley, with the River Avon running round the north and east sides.The village's population of about 5,000 is served by several small shops, two pubs, schools covering all levels of compulsory education and a swimming pool and fitness centre.The toponym is derived from the Old English Deor ingtūn, meaning 'farm or settlement connected with Deor', Deor being a personal name.HistoryPrehistoryThe area had been occupied since Neolithic times but not necessarily continuously. The parish contains two important Neolithic sites: Durrington Walls and Woodhenge. Recent archaeological excavations indicate that the neolithic inhabitants of the village kept a large number of pigs, with bone evidence suggesting that the pigs were unusually large for the time. This may be because inhabitants fattened them up to sell them to visitors to nearby Stonehenge.
