NOTES ON BALTONSBOROUGH

Meaning ‘Bealdhun’s Hill (or Barrow) Baltonsborough is considered to be the birthplace of St Dunstan.

Born in 925 he became one of the greatest figures in the Anglo Saxon church.

He rose to become Abbot of Glastonbury Abbey and then the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The 15th century village church is dedicated to him.

St Dunstan crowned King Edgar in Bath in 973 and devised the coronation service which has formed the basis for all subsequent English coronations.
