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. Lamyatt Matters carries information for all in the Parish.

The Village Hall is a 19th century school building that has recently been refurbished and extended to provide the hub for community life. There is a regular programme of activities in the hall, including some professional events bringing the Arts to the village.

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; and for its previous one-off or discontinued events which attracted many visitors, such as the Guy Fawkes Bonfire and Fireworks display and our wonderful Jubilee celebration that you can now view on youtube.

  1. What a great shame it is that we no longer celebrate Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night. I’ve just come back from Chitterne where all the children are getting ready for one of the favourite village events of the year. Lamyatt Village website should be updated. Sadly
