Croscombe is an attractive village of just over 600 people, built around the steep valley where the River Sheppey cuts through the south Mendips. It lies between Wells and Shepton Mallet. Many of its mainly stone-built cottages and houses date back to Jacobean, Tudor or Medieval times.
As well as a fine Church with a notable Jacobean interior, there is a village shop, locally owned and stocking a wide-range of mainly locally sourced goods, an award-winning pub, a small hotel and a number of B&Bs.
Croscombe has its own Orchestra which was started in 1975 by Jo Sackett who lives in Croscombe and has just celebrated its 40th Anniversary. The orchestra performs two concerts each year, in January and May, in the Village Hall.
The Hall is also home to a very wide range of clubs and societies, including monthly village film nights, and frequent charter markets, selling locally made foodstuffs and artefacts.
There is a children’s playground and sports field adjoining the Village Hall.
