Hi Janet,
I lived in churchways from 2007 until 2017 and I was told about the house having been a hairdressers at some point in the past. I think it might have been by John moynihan. The other point of contact would be South Somerset council as I believe some permission for change of use would have been involved.
Hope this helps.

I've been asked about the history of the house called 'Churchways', on Churchway. I believe it used to be a hairdresser's shop until 1998. Does anyone remember what the hairdresser's was called? Any information about who lived at the house, or anything else about it, would be great. Thanks in advance. Janet Seaton, Chair, Langport & District History Society

It is incredibly sad to read about the thefts in Curry Rivel. Especially the planters stolen recently in Church St.
As always someone somewhere knows who did this and the other thefts.

Once again please use the Avon and Somerset Police Webb Site where you can report these thefts anonymously if you know who is responsible. This sort of behaviour is particularly upsetting, anti social, and totally unforgivable. So take your civic responsibilities seriously and let us be more helpful towards our community by making a stand against this sort of behaviour before it takes hold. Those responsible need to understand that we are all watching out and eventually they will be identified.

The new cycle path will improve both the footpath and cycleway, help mums pushing buggies, provide more access for people with disabilities, make walking and cycling safer for all of us. This is a real opportunity for our community to rally round and support each other and to benefit future generations. If we fail to support the cause now and are unable to raise the necessary money this opportunity will be lost. Please don't let this happen folks! You all know just how miserable it is walking from Curry to Langport so a couple of £s wont break the bank account. If the cycleway / footpath study finds a really pleasant alternative route to Langport, that would be so worthwhile. We should all have a good understanding of that after walking miles during Lock down. Please think about the benefits it will bring for all of us 😊

News is spreading about a study to find a route suitable for a traffic free cycle and footpath between Curry Rivel and Langport and onto Huish Episcopi. What are your views? Would you support it? Would you use it? WE are raising funds so we can get a grant from Somerset County Council. Can you contrfibute?

I am quite new to Curry Rivel and keep seeing mention of the Food Bank, but where is it? I would potentially like to donate but it would help if I knew where it was !

We often hear from people concerned about local issues, speeding, dog poo, litter, antisocial behaviour etc, and many other issues. So, what are YOU going to do about it other than complain? If you wish to see changes in our community then it's up to all of us to be involved in those changes. The speed awareness team need help, money needs to be raised for the new cycle path how many of you support our local parish councils, do you even know who your parish councillors are? Will you vote for any of them in next years elections or stand yourself ? Or will you ever remain a complainer. Think you can't make a difference? Wrong, you can, you just have to make a commitment to do it!, so come on people let's take back control of the issues that concern you.

I love the new website! Easy on the eye, simple to navigate and I love the chatbox!

We moved to Curry Rivel in 2004. Recently we were given a leaflet ( distributed by the Avon and Somerset Police) saying that our local Coordinator had stepped down and it would be good for the village if a replacement could be found. I cant find any reference to this situation on the web site and would like to hear from anyone else who is interested in finding out more about it. Have you had the notice?

The speed through the village on the main road during lockdown has become unbelievable! I live on the main road through the village and I rarely see a car observing the speed limit. During the night cars travel through here doing much more than the speed limit. There are several cars driving through the village that have seriously blown exhausts and travelling at speed. They are local. The speed indicator boxes have made no noticeable difference. Cars regularly overtake outside my house just before the turnoff to Chatham Place. It will only be a matter of time before a serious accident occurs. Something needs to be done before somebody is seriously hurt or worse.

Is there any info on the website re the allotments?

History of Curry Rivel
Author A O Mounter 1910 – 1988

My father was born and lived all his life in Curry Rivel and spent many years after his retirement researching and writing this history of his beloved village.
He wrote it on an Amstrad word processor and then printed it on A4 paper to produce a few copies, one of which he deposited it in the Somerset Records office and one of which I have since scanned and converted to a microsoft word document that is available to anyone to do with as they wish within the limitations and restrictions of copyright law. Just send your email address to
