By Saxon times the settlement had moved to the present village site. No Saxon structures remain, though it is possible the present church is on the site of a wooden Saxon church. The hill is crowned with an Iron Age fort and there is evidence of Romano-British occupancy. Cannington Hill is believed to be the site of a battle in AD when the Saxons under King Odda defeated a force of Danish sea raiders who landed at nearby Combwich. It appears that some kind of shrine or mausoleum which is thought to have been late-Roman stood on the hill, surrounded by a of graves with many more graves further down the slope of the hill, the cemetery may have held anything up to a thousand graves, and may have been pagan in its earliest phases but was largely Christian and was in use from the 4th to the late 7th or early 8th century.
What makes the cemetery special was one particular grave which appears to have been especially venerated, covered by a small mound of earth on its surface, stone slabs formed into a box-like structure, at the east end were stones set as posts, one of which was decorated with a circular motif and perhaps runes.
The grave contained the remains of a young girl aged about 16 years of age. A well-used path led to the mound, here was evidently a venerated spot, often visited and close to which people wanted to be buried.
We will never know who the young girl was but her remains were re-interred in the Parish Church, and her burial place can be found at the base of the pulpit steps. Every year a small replica of the Statue is presented to a resident nominated for their service to the village.

Sadly due to extensive quarrying no trace of the cemetery can be seen today. So much of the archaeology has been lost due to the quarrying in the area but in while excavating the area from Cannington Hill to Rodway for a new by- pass, archaeologists found evidence of people living or working here from the late Bronze Age to modern times and of particular interest are the remains of three Roman buildings.
These had foundation of stone walls, although later quarrying had cut into many of the features. One building had a hypocaust which was an under floor central heating system. Hot air from a furnace was carried through box flue tiles and then circulated under the surface, supported by columns of tiles. Other finds included Iron Age and Roman pottery shards.
