Monksilver is a picturesque village on the eastern fringe of the Brendon Hills, between Watchet and Wiveliscombe. The village is so small that it has the distinction of the smallest parish council in Somerset. The name simply means Monks Wood taking its name from the Latin word ‘Silve’ meaning woodland.
We are located 3 miles west of Williton, on the eastern flank of the Brendon Hills and the border of the Exmoor National Park. The Coleridge Way footpath passes through our village
