Listed in the Domesday Survey of 1086, Stanford Dingley is a quintessential English village. Stanford is from the old English for Stoney-ford, perhaps indicating a Roman river crossing of the Pang heading towards Dorchester-on-Thames. Dingley was the name of the Lords of the Manor, one of their wives has a brass memorial in the 12th century village church, St Denys. The church has remnants of the original Saxon church within its inner walls and the main door and Nave wall date from the 13th century and the white wooden bell tower was built in the 15th century.
