2011 : Cottages in Batcombe
On my first visit to Batcome the impression I had was of a small but lively village, an impression borne out by it's websites.

"The village of Batcombe has a long history that goes back to Saxon times. It became rich in the 14th century due to the woollen trade and it was during this time that the very fine Parish Church of St Mary the Blessed Virgin was built to replace the earlier structure. It boasts a fine tower which affords splendid views of the beautiful valley in which Batcombe nestles.
Local Mendip limestone has historically been used to construct the local cottages and houses, many of which date from the 17th and 18th centuries."
