Welcome to the Batcombe Parish Council Website
The Parish Council's website is continually being developed and will gradually provide more information about the parish of Batcombe, local organisations, news and events - as well as those documents the Parish Council is required to publish.
BATCOMBE is a parish in the east of Somerset between Frome and Shepton Mallet, which consists of the villages of Batcombe and Westcombe together with a number of outlying hamlets and farmsteads. At the centre of the parish lies St Mary's Church with its magnificent 16th century tower, the Three Horseshoes pub, and a community centre consisting of the award-winning Jubilee Hall and the Old School Rooms. (To learn more about the Jubilee Hall and Old School Rooms click on the link to the Village Hall Trust website.)
News about BATCOMBE
No pre-salting in Batcombe this winter
Somerset Highways have indicated that the road through Batcombe will not be included on the pre-salting network this winter. As last year the road from Evercreech will only be salted to the edge of Westcombe, leaving no road out of Batcombe salted in icy weather.
Our County Councillor, Nigel Hewitt-Cooper, and representatives of the County Council's Highway Department attended the last Parish Council meeting on September 6th. It is hoped to find a compromise where a route further into the village can be pre-salted.
