First recorded in 1007, the name Wilbury is ancient, and the settlement there at least two thousand years older than that.

First recorded in 1007, the name Wilbury is ancient, and the settlement there at least two thousand years older than that.

Yet the name refers to willows in a landscape where they are unlikely ever to have flourished. A possible answer may lie in looking slightly further afield, where the village of Willian also refers to willows. What, if anything, is the connection?
