From the elevated position of St Peter's Church in Langford Budville you have views of a large portion of West Somerset. To the north you can see the Brendon Hills, the northeast the Quantocks and 8 miles to the east the county town of Taunton sits in the heart of the Vale of Taunton Deane. To the South East Wellington is less than 2 miles away.
A quietly historic area
We live in an interesting and, in the way of many lovely Somerset parishes, a quietly historic area. We have two ancient churches, a pub that has been serving both farm worker and lord of the manor since the 17th century and a thriving primary school that was built in 1851. Langford Heathfield, which borders Langford Budville to the east, is ancient common land and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. But everything here isn’t old: after over 30 years of fundraising, our wonderful Jubilee Hall was opened by HRH Prince Edward in 2013.
We’re a thriving parish so find out what we’re up to by looking at Round About, our monthly community magazine, and browsing the Activities and Parish Council pages.
