Where to go and what to do in Somerset - Wiveliscombe

Wiveliscombe (pop. c2500) is hub of the Ten Parishes (total pop. c8000):Ashbrittle, Bathealton, Brompton Ralph, Chipstable, Clatworthy, Fitzhead, Huish Champflower, Milverton, Stawley and Wiveliscombe itself.

With the exception of Milverton, a delightful, larger Georgian village with a strong musical tradition, the parishes are small ancient settlements tucked into the hills down winding, wooded lanes. It is a friendly part of the world, where neighbours still know each other, and a sense of community thrives.

Wiveliscombe serves the needs of many scattered farms and small communities throughout this part of west Somerset. It has a prosperous business population, with 300 small to medium-sized enterprises located within a five-mile radius. Agriculture - mainly pasture and grazing in the surrounding hills - is still a source of employment for many.

The hedgerows are well-maintained and teem with wildlife: you'll see badgers, hares, foxes and the occasional stoat or weasel. The temperate West Country climate shows through in a profusion of wild flowers.
