Although Bronze Age relics have been found here, Carterton is one of England’s newest towns and was only built in the early 20th century by the entrepreneurial house builder William Carter after he bought part of a large estate. During the Second World War it provided accommodation for personnel from nearby RAF Brize Norton, now Britain’s largest RAF base and the area’s largest employer.
