Jane Austen Plaque Charlcombe Parish, SomersetThe Civil Parish of Charlcombe  lies just to the north of Bath, between the city and the county boundary with South Gloucestershire. It stretches from the Lam Brook and Woolley Valley in the east to Upper Weston and the Cotswold Way in the west. Although large in area, the Parish has fewer than 400 residents, who live mainly in the hamlets of Charlcombe, Woolley, Langridge and Upper Weston (Dean Hill) and on the top of Lansdown.  The Parish lies entirely within the Green Belt and Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  Administratively, Charlcombe forms part of the Bathavon North Ward of Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES).

Charlcombe contains one Conservation Area, designated in 1981, centred on Charlcombe Lane and the hamlet of Charlcombe

Important facilities within the Parish include  Lansdown Park and RideBath Race Course, Lansdown Golf Club, Walcot Rugby Club and Larkhall Sports Club. To the north of the Parish, Sir Bevil Grenville’s monument commemorates the Battle of Lansdown  (5 July 1643) fought between the Royalists and Parliamentarians.

The Parish of Charlcombe has no shops, schools or surgeries, but is sufficiently close to the city to be well-served. In the future, it is hoped that the development of the MoD site at Ensleigh, which the Parish borders on 3 sides, will include additional facilities which will benefit Parish residents.

There are 3 churches located within the Parish: St Mary the Virgin, CharlcombeAll Saints, Woolley  and  St Mary Magdalene, Langridge.

Please note that Charlcombe is a Civil Parish and Charlcombe Parish Council has no involvement in the administration of the 3 churches within the Parish. For any information, including times of services, please contact the relevant church office.
