Hinton St George is regarded as one of the best kept villages in Somerset as it retains the character of a rural community with its own Local Shop & Post Office, Church and Award Winning Pub where you will always find a warm welcome.

Unspoilt Somerset

Hinton St George is a picturesque village in South Somerset surrounded by rolling farmland orchards and woodland. It’s history can be explored at a glance through its arcitecture and the layout of the streets.

The 15th Century Church with its fascinating monuments was built by Italian craftsmen and replaced an earlier structure. The mainly 16th Century Priory sits back from the High Street between handsome 17th and 18th Century Farm Houses, some with Medieval foundations. These rub shoulders with 18th Century buildings and lead to Victorian workers cottages at the crossroads. Following a hard fought campaign, the village and surrounding park became a conservation area, one of only five in the county.

Hinton St George boasts a Primary School, Allotments, Post Office, Village Hall, Shop, Tearooms and the Lord Poulett Arms pub, recently voted into the top 100 in the UK by the Sunday Times. With around 450 inhabitants, the Village enthusiastically carries on traditions established generations ago; Wassailing, the Village Fete, Oak Apple day, Pantomime, and the more esoteric Punkie Night held on the last Thursday in October.

Marshalling - the closest you can get to the Slay action without actually having to the run the race!
Hinton St George First School desperately need more marshals for this year's Slay the Dragon Races on 25th February.

What we need
People prepared to help with marshalling. Marshals are vital as they are located around the race course and provide directional assistance and encouragement to runners.

What’s involved?
2-3 hours giving directions to runners along the course. NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. You’ll be provided with course information and will be fully briefed before the race.

When?
The morning of Sunday 25th February, from 9.30am meeting at St George’s Village Hall.

SWAG?
Nice cup of tea and slice of cake when you finish, and you’ll be helping your village school.

Can you/your family/anyone you know help with marshalling this year? If so, please call or message Kat Khan-Davis (07738 223200) or Tess Chapman (07737 928610).

I am organising a photo shoot for Simon's work for an interiors magazine and I wanted to ask if anyone in the village had old Somerset items of any sort - old tools, kitchen things, farming, anything really Thomas Hardy esque - we need it to look turn of the century, rustic. Donate or I have a small budget - culturally rich - cash poor! ... See MoreSee Less
