Wiveliscombe Area Website

Milverton (Pop c1400) is a very active and pretty village lying two miles south of Wiveliscombe, just off the Taunton Road.

A former cloth-working town, the Somerset Urban Archaeological Survey notes that it probably has its origins in Saxon times. The Domesday Book refers to a mill in the location, suggesting the roots of Milverton's name. Milverton has a beautiful church, a number of shops and pubs serving the local population together with many community-led societies and associations, focused on the arts and other activities.
