NOTES ON CROSCOMBE

In early Saxon times (AD 705), Croscombe was known as Correges Cumb and by 1309 as Corscombe. The name actually means 'The valley of the pass way'.

A former weaving village, Croscombe contains many interesting relics of it's past, including old mills and a Medieval Squint bridge.

The Parish church of The Virgin Mary is part 13th century. It has a tall spire, a rarity in Somerset. Inside, you will find a wonderful example of Jacobean dark oak fittings carved in a variety of heraldic and pastoral designs.
