| Events in Priston | 10 Places to Stay

Priston is a pretty village with a fascinating history, situated a few miles from the Georgian city of Bath, and is home to just over two hundred and fifty people. The small village has a mix of architecture with stone cottages and houses and is surrounded by beautiful countryside that entices walkers and horse riders to the narrow lanes and paths. It dates far back in time and saw the enterprising Romans arrive and build a villa here in 100AD; and which later led to the discovery of a Roman coffin in 1917. A stroll around the village will uncover a delightful Village Green and a welcoming Inn to try, and there's an impressive church that's dedicated to St Luke and St Andrew which has an eye catching 15th Century tower that's crowned with a gold plated cockerel some 6' x 5' in size, which graces the skyline. Agriculture has been the main industry for many centuries, and it still continues today with the surrounding farmland, although the mining of coal also played its part with the growth of the village when the first seams were sunk in 1765 and the mining of coal continued until the 20th Century.
