Flower Delivery to Over Compton with Clare Florist

Over Compton is a small village and civil parish located in the north part of Dorset, England. It has a population of 183. This village is located very close to Yeovil (just 2 miles east from this famous town. Over Compton is also very close the county border with Somerset.

According to some source the name of this village comes from two Anglo-Saxon words – cum and ton. The first one was usually used for description of narrow valleys or comb while the latter is a well-known term for settlements. Over Compton is situated in the Yeo Valley. What is interesting about this place is that it was mentioned in the Domesday Book. In this medieval book, Compton was described as a wealthy agricultural settlement, but the description lacks precise location of this place at that time. Starting from the 12th century, Compton was separated into two villages – Nether and Over Compton. It is obvious that Over Compton is located above nether Compton.

Another important year for this area was 1736 when the famous Goodden family got the manor of Over Compton and this family has significantly affected the history of this area. It is also good to point out that both Over Compton and Nether Compton were known for the residents who were devoted Protestants. There are several churches and chapels in this area.

Over Compton is located about 130 miles east of London. It takes a 3-hour drive to get to Over Compton from London. You can also use the train station in Yeovil.
