All About Timberscombe in Somerset

Timberscombe is a village in Somerset that is within the Exmoor National Park, a place of outstanding scenery kept vibrant and colourful by the numerous flowers in Timberscombe. The park is known for its many walking and riding opportunities. The hamlet of Bickham is part of the Timberscombe’s civil parish.

Village History

The village is one of the Hundred of Carhampton ceremonial counties of Somerset, which was established before the Norman Conquest. Each one of the 40 hundreds have a fryd, a court responsible for maintaining the frankpledge system and for its local defence.

In the 13th century, there were farmsteads called Bickham and West Harwood, which might have originated as medieval hamlets, fields called Timberscombe and Pitt, a vineyard, and a wood called Maioc. Still, there is little evidence of the farming economy of the parish before the late 16th century, although Bickham have landshares. This may have something to do with divided estate ownership, called common fields in 1775.

Farming became better in the 19th century. Arable lands accounted for almost half of the land in the parish, followed by an orchard, and a pasture and meadow. Livestock has also been exchanged, including sheep, horses and ox. Two mills were in business until 1900. Timberscombe also managed to supply enough fat stock to its own slaughterhouse.

Fast forward to the 20th century, agriculture in Timberscombe is only supplemented by a small number of shops and enterprises, for a number of reasons. Farm buildings were widely scattered and arable lands kept shrinking.
