Myddle Castle was built here c. 1308 by Lord John Le Strange but it fell into ruin and collapsed during the earthquake of 1688. One of the first records of the name was Richard le Midel who was listed in Oxfordshire in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273.  Simon atte Middele was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Somerset in 1327.
