The South Somerset District Council website provides a good introduction to Tintinhull including a brief history and photograph gallery, while the GENUKI page for Tintinhull includes a 1900 map. Duncan Weir's website includes a page on the village with a basic historical introduction (including an old map). The location of the parish can be viewed on the South Somerset parish map. The Tintinhull Local History Group also has an excellent website devoted to the history of the village.

An interesting review of the early history of Tintinhull, drawing on a range of medieval sources, was written by the Reverend J.B.Hyson, vicar, and appears in Proceedings of the Somerset Archaeological & Natural History Society Vol. XXXII, part 2, pp.68-89.
