Things to do in Hinton St. George, Somerset

Hinton St. George was for centuries the home of the Poulett family whose power and wealth built the schools, halls and artisans' houses to serve the estate. At least two cottages date from the 14th century.

In October children parade candlelit mangel-wurzels through the village to celebrate 'Punky Night', recalling when village wives tried to frighten their drunken husbands who had outstayed their leave at Chiselborough Fair.
