Yardley Gobion Local History Group

The name Yardley meant a clearing in woodland from where yards or spars were collected. About 1160, Hugh Gobion from Northampton was granted some land at Yardley. The hamlet took on the family name to distinguish it from another Yardley (i.e. Hastings). History Group meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month at Yardley Gobion Village Hall.
