NOTES ON HUISH EPISCOPI
By the end of the 12th century the Manor of Huish was controlled by the Bishop of Bath, providing the attachment of Episcopi (of the Bishop) to the village name.
Huish is a Saxon word meaning household.
Romano-British remains, including burials, coins and tesserae of the 3rd & 4th century have been periodically found nearby.
The 15th century church tower was featured on a British postal stamp in 1972.
