NOTES ON PEN SELWOOD

Pen Selwood (or Penselwood) was known as Pen until the 19th century and is situated at the southern end of a wooden ridge that formed the core of the ancient forest of Selwood.

King Edmund Ironside fought a Danish army there in 1016 and the area has been identified as the site of Conwealh's victory over the Britons in 658.

Sir Arthur Bliss (1891-1975), the composer, lived in the parish from 1935 to 1955 in a house named Pen Pits.
