Brief history of the area.

The Domesday Book makes reference to Crockernwell. Given that the name could be derived from the word “crock,” which is another word for pot, it could be a place where pots were created. The village plan’s components point to a phase of medieval planning that most likely added to an existing settlement.

Due to Crockernwell’s location on the old route to Cornwall, the parish assisted up to 100 mobile travelers annually during the seventeenth century. After the road had been turnedpike in 1795, the first stage coach made its way through the community.
