The village has a local nature reserve called Swallowfield Meadow.[3]

Swallowfield Park is a stately home situated in an estate half a mile north east of the village. The current mansion has been converted into exclusive apartments.[4]

Notable residents

Swallowfield has been the home of a number of famous persons including Thomas 'Diamond' Pitt, the Governor of Fort St. George;[5] William Backhouse, the Rosicrucian philosopher;[6] Henry Hyde, 2nd Earl of Clarendon;[7] and, in his childhood, Edward Hyde, 3rd Earl of Clarendon.[8] The 19th century author Mary Russell Mitford retired to the village and is buried in the churchyard.[9]
