Weyhill is situated on the oldest ancient way in Britain, the "Harroway" or "Pilgrim's Way" where it crosses the old "Gold Road". It has been a centre of worship since at least the Bronze Age, 1500 BC, with its origin lost in remote antiquity. The church was mentioned in the Doomsday Book and was known as "De La Woe". Its history has been linked with the Ancient Fair, in its time the largest fair in the country. The original meaning of fair; "Feriae" was a religious holiday, before trade took its place on which day people gathered to visit the temple and offer sacrifices.
