WELCOME TO THE COMMUNITY WEBSITE FOR
THE PARISH OF COMPTON BISHOP
Nestling at the foot of the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills in Somerset, the parish of Compton Bishop comprises the settlements of Cross, Newtown, Rackley, Webbington and of course Compton Bishop itself.
Compton Bishop nestles in an unspoilt area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), visited by many who appreciate the beautiful breath-taking scenery. The parish has a network of more than 13 miles of well-used public footpaths, bridleways and permissive paths which provide a wonderful variety of routes with Crook Peak and Wavering Down dominating the sky-line. This area of The Mendip Hills is owned and cared for by the National Trust and provides a peaceful recreational space for all who visit.
This web site provides information on local groups, items of local interest as well as all Parish Council information, minutes, etc.
