Welcome to Monkton Combe Village Website

Village Newsletter -May 2015 (.pdf)

News of the start date for the anticipated total closure north of the junction is March 2nd.

We received a communication regarding access to the Monkton Combe Garage during this time. This reads as follows:

When the A36 will be closed to through traffic between Hantone Hill and the Brassknocker Hill junction from Monday 2 March 2015. During this time, the services offered by businesses in this location, such as The Monkton Combe Garage, will continue and access to these businesses will be maintained. However, it may be prudent to call any business before visiting to ensure this remains the same. Customers coming from the south will not be affected by the closure. However, for those travelling down from Bath, you will have to go via Brassknocker Hill, which will remain open for the duration of the work.  

If you have any further queries regarding the works and how it might affect you please contact the Highways Agency on  0300 123 5000

History of the Village

Portrait of a Parish - As a Millennium project, the Women's Institute (W.I.) compiled a book called "Portrait of a Parish". With input from residents past and present - it describes the last 100 years of Monkton Combe. A must to read! See how different life was then compared to now. Read brief extracts here, then click on the History link on left to read more.

Walks in and around Monkton Combe

The countryside around here is stunningly beautiful. There are a variety of walks in the immediate area for you to explore. Some are quite easy going, while others take a bit more stamina.


  • Addition of a Village Green - organised by Village Hall Committee and the land kindly donated by Monkton Combe School

  • Foot Bridge over the Mill Leat - after a 20 year + absence, thus enabling the footpath to be fully used. Thanks to Parish Council and Colin Hudson from B&NES. This was a Millennium Project. The bridge is unofficially named "Millennium Bridge" A name plaque was added to the bridge in 2012.

  • 20mph Speed Limit - through village - organised by Monkton Combe School and Parish Council as a joint venture. Hopefully this will make vehicles slow down when driving through the single tracks and where roads are frequented by school children.

  • Lock up - repairs to the Lock up.

  • Playground - replacement equipment and new safety flooring
