The on-line guide to Norton St Philip

Introduction: The village of Norton Saint Philip is located approximately 7 miles south of the City of Bath in the West Country of England. Set in a scenery of rolling green Somerset hills, the village is home to about 1000 residents.

This is a place with a history, a small battle was fought here during Monmouth's Rebellion in 1685, and 'The George Inn' is one of the oldest pubs in England, with an entry in the record books.

The village has as its social focus: three Churches, Village Green ('Churchmead'), a school, Village Hall ('The Palairet'), two pubs ('The George Inn' and 'The Fleur de Lys').

These unofficial webpages were launched in 1998 to provide an introductory online guide to the village.

Alternatively you can take the larger A36 road southbound, off which you need to take a right hand turn near Farleigh Hungerford onto the A366 westbound. The village lies about 1 mile onward.
