Signpost near Hewish and Crewkerne
This is on a minor road just south of Crewkwerne. The reason the sign for Hewish is different to the others is that when the signs were made, the Hewish sign was spelled incorrectly as "HUISH" (the spelling used for the far more famous Yeovil Town Football Club ground 10 miles away at Yeovil) and had to be replaced. The sign was replaced in 2009.

The name Huish is common in Somerset (where it can be found 21 times in various forms) but is not at all common elsewhere in the country. It seems to have meant ‘household’ or ‘family farm’ many hundreds of years ago. It has been suggested that places with this name are what is left of a pre-Saxon, farmstead settlement pattern that existed before villages became the norm. This farmstead pattern was replaced by planned open-field villages in the later Saxon period.
