Catcott

Link to map.

The pretty village of Catcott sits on slopes of the Polden ridge not far from the A39.

It has several pleasant pubs such as "The King William" or "The Crown" with good food where you may need to book up for a place to get a Sunday Lunch.

The church is very small, old and quaint and worth a look at. Dedicated to St Peter, it has very old pews and some stocks in the porch.

Catcott is only a mile from Edington to the west and a couple of miles to Shapwick to the East.

South of the village down the Polden ridge are areas of land that floods heavily in the winter time. This is now the nature reserve of the Catcott Complex which is made up of the Catcott Lowes and Catcott Heath. These are run by the Somerset Wildlife Trust.

Adjoining them is Shapwick Moor nature reserve run by the Hawk and Owl Trust. This reserve is actually closer, but the entrance to it is on the Shapwick side at Station Road.
