About us

Our Office has been built on the former grounds of the Old Brewery site which is situated on Brewery Lane opposite The Malt House.

Holcombe is a small village in the Mendip district of Somerset. It is within easy commuting distance of both Bristol and Bath, situated on the eastern extent of the Mendip Hills, at the top of Holcombe Hill and extending down a south facing slope. The southern boundary is the Nettlebridge valley. It is roughly equidistant between Bath and Wells and just to the east of the Fosse Way (A367 through Stratton-on-the-Fosse). The surrounding villages are Stratton-on-the-Fosse, Coleford, Charlton, Kilmersdon, Leigh Upon Mendip and Stoke St. Michael, all of which lie in adjoining parishes. The highest point in the village is at the crossroads, 193m above sea level.

The original medieval village was buried at the time of the plague and the old parish church, which survives, is surrounded by the mounds that bear testimony to this burial. It is suggested that the rhyme 'Ring a Ring o' Roses' began there as a result. An alternative explanation relates to the drowning of five children from the village in an icy pond in 1899.

For a time, Scott of the Antarctic's parents lived at and ran the Brewery in Holcombe. Members of his family are buried in a family grave, a memorial accrediting Scott's interment in the Antarctic, in the Holcombe old church.

The village has two pubs: The Duke of Cumberland, which can be found at the bottom of the village's hill and the Holcombe Inn, which recently changed its name from The Ring O' Roses to its original 1960s name. It was named the Ring O' Roses as a reminder of the plague that previously destroyed the village.
