Wiveliscombe Area Website

Fitzhead (pop c250) nestles in a valley three miles east of Wiveliscombe, down a narrow lane off the B3577 between Wiveliscombe and Taunton.

St James' Church plays an active role in the community, and the old Tithe Hall has been converted to a venue that hosts local parties and events. The village has a popular pub, the Fitzhead Inn, which offers bed and breakfast, as well as excellent evening and lunchtime meals. Fitzhead Court was once the principal residence of Lord Ashburton, related to the Baring banking dynasty, who built the Town Hall in Wiveliscombe in the late 19th century.
