Welcome to my website! I grew up in this beautiful village and I've been looking into its origins; some families have been in Montacute for generations. I wanted to answer a simple question: who lived here before me? But I was discovering so much history that I was losing track of it all.
So these are my notes on what I've found out and where I got the different bits of information from. Many thanks to those who have helped me add to these notes; please let me know if you spot any inconsistencies!
Scroll down to browse through my Montacute Snippets for village history, legends and local tales; there are photos of the village in the photo gallery at the bottom of this page (or use the 'Gallery' link above) and there are a huge number of old photos of the village online; this picture postcard shows St Catherine's Church at the southern end of Bishopston.
