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.)
