Emborough

Emborough Parish extends for 2.8 square miles and has a population of 148. It is situated 5 miles north east of Wells, 5 miles north of Shepton Mallet and 14 miles south of Bristol and Bath. The Parish extends from Ston Easton to Binegar.

 

Previously part of the Hippisley Estate, the parish includes the original Manor House situated next to the Church which was occupied by the Hippilsey family from Elizabethan times until they moved to Ston Easton. The prominent church dates from medieval times but is now closed and managed by the Churches Conservation Trust.

 

Emborough Pond is situated to the south of the village and extends to 10 acres and was formerly held by monks. More recently it has been used for angling.

 

The village has a pub, the Old Down Inn, which is actually within Ston Easton Parish and is within the catchment of Chewton Mendip Primary School.
