Wiveliscombe is a historic market town set in wonderful surroundings on the edge of Exmoor, in the Brendon Hills. The area is known as the 10 parishes, with Wiveliscombe - surrounded by Ashbrittle, Bathealton, Brompton Ralph, Chipstable, Clatworthy, Fitzhead, Huish Champflower, Milverton and Stawley - forming the hub.
There are more than 300 businesses operating within a five-mile radius of this hardworking community for which the first class communication links surrounding Wiveliscombe are invaluable. Wiveliscombe is four miles from the Devon/Somerset border, 10 miles from the County Town of Taunton and 9 Miles from Junction 26 of the M5.
Wiveliscombe has a rich history and an impressive architectural heritage to include early-19th-century church of St Andrew, Regency houses and old cottages. The Market Place has medieval origins and until the Dissolution of the Monasteries a Palace of the Bishop of Bath and Wells existed on the area now known as the Palace Gardens. Visitors marvel over the distinctive timber-and-brick Court House with its elaborately carved wooden figures. It was built by the Hancock family in 1886, whose brewery has been a local landmark since 1897.
