MARSH GIBBON!!
« on: January 31, 2015, 04:36:53 pm »
So... sad individual that I am,  I decided to satisfy my curiosity about Steve's Marsh Gibbon visits by looking through each and every Strava track this year so far and counting how many times he passed through it.

From wikipedia:
Quote
One of the two entries in the Domesday Book for the village is unique in having the only comment of any kind, namely "Graviter et miserabiliter"

Doesn't sound very appealing. But they've opened a pub since then.

Fascinating:

The village name comes from the English word 'marsh', describing the typical state of land in the area due to the high water table of the Aylesbury Vale. The affix 'Gibbon' derives from the family name 'Gibwen', the lords of the manor here in the twelfth century. In manorial rolls of 1292 the village was recorded as Mersh Gibwyne, though earlier (in 1086) it was known simply as Merse.
