Compton Martin is the second largest village in our area.
The ancient village of Compton Martin lies in a pleasantly situated vale on the north‐eastern side of the Mendip Hills.
It is a village in the Chew Valley dating back to Doomsday and is home to about 500 inhabitants. It is an active and sociable village with lovely walks, a pond, great pub, post office, village hall, the old school room and one of the best Norman churches in Somerset.
There are a number of social activities in the village which include weekly Pilates classes, Art Group, Bridge Group, gardening club, flower arranging and dance club. The Compton Martin Players is a flourishing Amateur Dramatic group putting on plays and pantomimes in the village hall, which is a key centre of village activities.
The village hall is also a popular venue in the village for holding events such as The Harvest Supper run by the 1982 Committee who provide the food and the entertainment. There is an adjoining multi‐purpose field.
Monthly lunches for senior citizens are held in the Ring O' Bells pub and weekly coffee mornings are held in the Old Schoolroom which is adjacent to the church.
Every year the church and village hold a very successful Fete and The Ring O' Bells holds a Cheese and Cider Festival.
