The village of Cannington, on the edge of the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, can trace its past as a popular settlement back as far as 1500 years. It retains its sense of community as expressed in the name of one of its five pubs - The Friendly Spirit Inn. The pub is named after the ghost of a nun from the nearby Priory said to haunt its upstairs rooms.
In the middle of the moors and the heart of some of the country’s best diary pasture, the village or Isle of Wedmore is slightly raised; having been built on stone that was not scoured away by the rivers when the sea water receded. The elevation gives dramatic views of the distinctively lush landscape backed by the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Camerton is home to about 600 people living in 258 dwellings spread over a large geographical area (2 miles by 2 miles).
This large and attractive village extends below the south western limit of the Quantock Hills. With the proximity to Taunton, Bishops Lydeard has expanded rapidly, with modern estates and a welcome bypass. The village retains it's mature heart with church, school, library, health centre, pubs and shops.
