Hindon’s prosperity was due to its markets and fairs, and its position on and near main roads. Almost immediately after the foundation of the village in 1218 a weekly market was held and this continued for centuries: Hindon was noted for its market in the mid and late 16th century. Coaching was probably the major industry in the village in the 18th and early 19th centuries. The main London-Exeter road ran across the downs, and in 1754 there were fourteen inns and public houses in the village, plus associated stabling for the horses. Such was the vitality of Hindon that it quickly recovered after the disastrous fire of 1754.
