"CREDENHILL, a parish in the hundred of GRIMSWORTH, county of HEREFORD, 4 miles (N. W. by W.) from Hereford, containing 199 inhabitants. The living is a discharged rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £17. 19. 4., and in the patronage of the Rev. Edmund Eckley. The church is dedicated to St. Mary. On the summit of a steep and lofty hill, the declivity of which is well wooded, are the remains of an ancient and almost inaccessible camp, having an outer and an inner trench, enclosing an area of nearly forty acres: from its irregular form some have attributed this work to the Britons, while others, with greater probability, suppose it to have been constructed by the Romans, for the defence of their adjacent station at Kenchester, the Magna Castra of Antoninus: the view from it is one of the most extensive and beautiful in the county."
