Things to do in Ashbrittle, Somerset


West of Wellington and the River Tone, the parish of Ashbrittle takes its name from the ash trees and a Norman Lord Bretel (de St. Clair).

The village is centred on the green and the Church of St. John the Baptist, a 15th century church believed to have been built on the site of a druid circle. The yew tree in the churchyard is over 3000 years old and is thought to be the oldest in Taunton Deane.
