Loxton village, Somerset

Loxton is a village and civil parish in Somerset, England. It is close to the M5 motorway in the Unitary Authority of North Somerset. The parish includes the village of Christon and had a population of 202 in 2001.

Loxton takes its name from the Lox Yeo River (once simply known as the Lox), on which it is situated. The village is mentioned in the Domesday book as Lochestone. The parish was part of the Winterstoke Hundred. The village has been populated since Norman times. Old mine-workings on the hills indicate that at one time mining was abundant, probably for calamine, lead, copper and more recently yellow ochre. During the construction of the M5 motorway a Roman or pre-Roman settlement was uncovered at Christon.

Christon Court has medieval origins, but the current building dates from the 17th century.
