Marston Magna village, Somerset

Marston Magna (also known as Broad or Great Marston) is a village and civil parish, situated 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Yeovil in the South Somerset district. The village had a population of 431 in 2002.

The name Marston Magna means 'larger settlement by a marsh'.

It was held as nine separate estates before the Norman Conquest. The parish was part of the hundred of Horethorne. The site of the medieval manor house survives as a moat and fish ponds south of the village. In the early 18th century the estate was held by Sir John St Barbe and was passed on through the Ashington and Sydenham families.
