Welcome to Neroche Parish Villages

Nestling in the lee of the Blackdown Hills AONB



The Neroche Parish Villages of Bickenhall, Curland, Orchard Portman, Thurlbear and Staple Fitzpaine lie in rural Somerset, between the Blackdown Hills and Taunton, in the area covered by Neroche Parish Council

This website is also the official website for Neroche Parish Council, which is the local council for the parishes of Bickenhall, Curland, Orchard Portman with Thurlbear and Staple Fitzpaine



Our local clubs, societies, action groups and churches are listed on the website.  There are links to Neroche Hall (our village hall), Thurlbear Primary School and to local businesses   

The lanes, footpaths, bridleways and the forests are ideal for activities for all the family.  Use the website to find our local walking group and our equine businesses

There are links to the websites of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Beauty and the Neroche Woodlanders at Young Wood which provide further recreational and educational activities
