Our village is a real community and one of the aims of this website is to keep everyone, whether residents or visitors, informed of the events and activities that go to make the village what it is. Buckland Dinham has been witness to over a thousand years of recorded history and perhaps a little more if you count the archaeology present in the area. We are located between Frome and Radstock in Somerset on the side of a south facing hill on the A362 surrounded by beautiful Somerset countryside. The village has many active interest groups, centred around the village hall, a beautiful 12th century church, and a vibrant pub, The Bell Inn.
Many apologies for the very long delay in getting the site sorted out. We had some technical problems which proved, in the end, to be very easy to sort out - it was getting there that was the trouble.
Many thanks for Stellasoft in Frome for their help in this!
Buckland Dinham Parish Council
The Parish Council now has its own its own website www.bucklanddinham.org for you to find out anything you want to about council business.
This will include minutes of meetings, financial information, an introduction to your councillors and who knows what else in the long term!
There is also a new email address to contact the clerk - email@example.com - but this site is staying to bring you info about everything else that happens in the village, news, details of groups and lots more.
Views around our village
The interregnum is over - we have a new vicar, or priest in charge to give him his proper title.
Fr. Clive Fairclough has now been formally appointed and he and his wife Jo are now settling in at the Rectory in Mells.
The village location
We are located on the main A362 between Frome and Radstock at the end of a wide, partly wooded valley.
