Merriott village, Somerset

A small village and civil parish near the town of Crewkerne and about 10 miles southwest of Yeovil in South Somerset. The village had a population of 2,020 in 2002.

On Church Street, there is a well-preserved tithe barn, which is used by local organisations including the playgroup, badminton club and a Morris dancing side (Dr Turberville's Morris). The village is home to Merriott Rovers F.C. who play in the Perry Street and District League, spanning Somerset, Dorset and Devon. Also situated in Merriott is a Co-op and all-purpose food store. It has two pubs: the 17th century King's Head and the 19th century Swan.

The parish boundary includes the River Parrett which is crossed by the Bow Bridge. Next to it is Bow Mill House, with its attached watermill which dates from the 17th century. Tail Mill was used for sail cloth manufacture.
