Twyning, Gloucestershire

Twyning is a village on the River Avon in the north of Gloucestershire, near Tewkesbury, England. The name derives from the Old English for "between the rivers"; despite its spelling, it is pronounced "twinning". The village is divided into two parts, the older "Churchend", and "Twyning Green", where the populace are said to have moved to escape the Black Death. It has two pubs, The Fleet at Twyning by the river and the Village Inn overlooking the village green.
