Things to do in East Coker, Somerset

At East Coker picturesque 16th and 17th century farmhouses and almshouses cluster below the manor and church. Ancestors of the poet T. S. Eliot emigrated from here, and his ashes are interred in the parish church.

Down the lane are Sutton Bingham reservoir and church with its fine medieval wall paintings.

Further on is Pen Wood with its nature trail and superb views.

Nearby on the A30 is West Coker, an attractive hamstone village made prosperous in bygone days by the growing of hemp and flax and the manufacture of rope and twine.
