Horton is a village on the Cotswold Edge, in Gloucestershire, England. It is about 2 1⁄2 miles north of Chipping Sodbury. The nearest settlement is Little Sodbury, about 1 1⁄2 miles away; Hawkesbury Upton and Dunkirk are both 2 1⁄2 miles miles away. It is a linear settlement built on the slopes of a steep hill.
The name Horton is a common one in England. It normally derives from Old English horu 'dirt' and tūn 'settlement, farm, estate', presumably meaning 'farm on muddy soil', but the historical forms of this Horton vary, including the Domesday Horedone, Hortune from 1167, and the 1291 form Heorton, the latter of which could point to Old English heort 'stag'.
