Kilve lies between the Quantocks Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the coast, which has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is a welcoming village, with a beach celebrated for its fossils, wonderful and varied walks, cricket teams playing on a ground which must be one of the most beautifully situated in England, a pub and a well-stocked shop and post office. The Village Hall hosts all kinds of activities and entertainment, with something for everyone.

The Parish Council have been lobbying Somerset County Council for some services in our area ... in particular support for the last bus service after the collapse of Webbers and withdrawal by Buses of Somerset. 

SCC Cllr Fothergill's response (13/10/16)

Dear Dr Keen

Thank you for contacting Somerset County Council regarding service 14. As you may know, this is a commercial service and not one subsidised by the local authority. We regret that, following the operator’s decision to withdrawal the service, the County Council cannot afford to step in and provide a direct replacement. While we recognise this will have an impact on those who use the service, the Council has to operate within its budgets. It is not in a position to increase the £1.6m it currently spends every year subsidising bus services that cannot operate commercially.

The Domesday Book listed Kilve back in 1086 as Clive, proably after the cliffs that dominate the coastline along this part of Somerset.

Over 925 years later, the population at Kilve stands at close to 400. Sitting in the designated Quantocks Area of Outstanding National Beauty and with a rich tapestry of interesting buildings, heritage and wildlife - Kilve's history has made it the place it is today.

This classic Victorian building boasts a main hall with stage, an additional annex 'The Denovan Room', kitchen, lavatories and free car parking facilities.
