Welcome to the Official Website of Wedmore Parish Council
Wedmore is the principal village on the Isle
of Wedmore, a ridge of higher land rising
out of the Somerset Levels. It is four miles
from Cheddar and the Mendips; and eight
miles from Wells and Glastonbury.
Wedmore has been a settlement since early times; recent discoveries have unearthed remains of the Bronze and Iron Ages. Several Roman sites have also been found, and in Saxon times Wedmore belonged to the Kings of Wessex.
The village has several pubs and restaurants together with a Post Office, village store, delicatessan, chemist and fashion shops. There are also gift shops, hairdressers, butchers and many more retail outlets.
The Council office in Grants Lane is normally open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings.
