The parish of Westfield surrounds an ancient Roman Road, the Fosseway. Although Westfield was not named in the Domesday Book it finally got its full identity when it was named as a Civil Parish in 2011. Positioned between the towns of Midsomer Norton and Radstock, Westfield is emerging as a true community with a character all of its own.
