Welcome to our village

Lamyatt, a small rural hamlet of some183 residents, borders the local landmark of Creech Hill and is close to the market towns of Castle Cary and Bruton.

One of the longest continuously inhabited settlements in Britain, it has a recorded history pre-dating Roman times and is now a thriving community with villagers drawn from all walks of life.

Our website provides general information for visitors and residents alike. It also acts as an archive for our distributed newsletter and emails.

The Village Hall is a 19th century school building which provides the hub for community life. With facilities now outdated, we are currently working towards raising funds for its improvement and extension for which we have now received planning permission.

The village has gained a well deserved reputation for its annual open air Shakespeare production performed by a professional touring company; the Cider Co-operative producing Bullbeggar cider; our Guy Fawkes Bonfire and Fireworks display and our wonderful Jubilee celebration that you can now view on youtube.
