Charlton Musgrove village, Somerset

Charlton Musgrove is a village and civil parish situated 1 mile northeast of Wincanton in the South Somerset district. The village had a population of 375 in 2002. The parish includes the hamlets of Barrow, Holbrook, Southmarsh, and part of Shalford.

In 1066 the holder of the manor was Godman but passed to Robert FitzGerold by the time of the Domesday Book in 1086. The parish of Charlton Musgrove was part of the Norton Ferris Hundred.

In 1861 the Dorset Central Railway opened a standard gauge track through the western side of the parish, joining Templecombe with Cole. It was linked to Glastonbury in the following year by the Somerset and Dorset Railway and was double lined in 1887. The line was closed in 1966.
