Welcome to the Parish of Broadhembury
Our Broadhembury Parish website is the primary source of information about the villages and hamlets of our parish and its surrounding area. The site is administered by the Parish Council but is intended for use by the whole community and visitors. It also provides an electronic notice board for the parish.
The East Devon parish of Broadhembury, with a population of some 700, lies partly within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It includes the historic and picturesque village of Broadhembury and surrounding hamlets of Kerswell, Luton, Colliton and Dulford.
The attractive parish church of Broadhembury dates back to 13thC. Popular local pubs include The Drewe Arms in Broadhembury, Six Bells in Payhembury, Keepers Cottage Inn at Kentisbeare and there is a local Post Office shop and tea room in Broadhembury main square. There are extensive bridleways and paths leading deeper into the Blackdowns for walkers and horse riders, and for the more adventurous the Devon & Somerset gliding club at North Hill.
On this website you will find information about the Parish Council, and related information. You will also find links to community groups and services and to leisure activities and facilities including places to stay. As the site is still being developed this information is not yet comprehensive: please contact us if you have ideas or questions or wish to add a link.
