The settlement at Market Overton probably dates back to Roman times; many Roman artefacts have been found in the village and the earthworks to the north and east of the church are thought to be Roman in origin.
The village was important in Saxon times too; an early pagan cemetery to the south-east produced many fine grave goods, and the church tower dates to the 10th century.
There are references to a market here from the early 12th century- hence the name- and village green probably marks the location of the medieval market place. Today it is home to the village stocks and whipping post.
The village of Market Overton is served by bus routes RF2 and 111a
