The parish of Nettlecombe stretches from just below Ralegh’s Cross in the south (excluding Chidgley) to Torre and Fair Cross in the North.  To the East it stretches to Yarde, Woodford and Colton and to the West to Beggearn Huish and Woodadvent.  Most of the parish is within Exmoor National Park.  There is an electorate of about 150.


The Parochial Church Council (which is separate from the Parish Council) run Nettlecombe Church and are keen to ensure as many residents as possible are kept informed of activities taking place in the Church.  To receive the Church newsletter please contact Jane Wynne (01984 640743).
