Oakhill

Home

The Parish of Ashwick is situated in the eastern area of the Mendip Hills, 4 miles north of Shepton Mallet, and 6 miles north-east of the Cathedral City of Wells. Ashwick Parish is one of dispersed settlements, with the village of Oakhill being the largest populated area. Smaller hamlets are at Benter and Neighborne and a small cluster of houses close to Ashwick church. The Parish also embraces part of the hamlet of Nettlebridge and part of the village of Gurney Slade.

There are many isolated farmsteads and today, farming is the major economic activity taking place in the Parish.

Ashwick is an ancient settlement dating back to the 9th century, but with much older connections. The Roman road, the Fosse Way, passes along the eastern boundary of the parish and to the west is Maesbury hill fort, a major Iron Age settlement.

The parish contains a network of thriving communities: churches, pubs, a school, farms, small businesses, and many people who choose to live in this beautiful part of the Somerset countryside and commute to nearby towns.

Oakhill Surgery Premises and Car Park Extension.

Francesca Palmer, 
Practice Manager,
Oakhill Surgery.

We are pleased to announce that the practice is undergoing work for an extension to the current building and car park. The building work will take approximately 4 months to complete but once finished the practice will benefit from:

-          A new ground floor consultation room
-          An interview room
-          A lift to the upstairs consultation room
-          An additional 10 spaces added to the current car park

We are confident that our patients will see the benefits to this work which will make it more convenient for patients and also allows us to look at expanding the services we offer to our patients.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or noise disturbance caused when visiting the practice and we are grateful for your ongoing support throughout the building work. We will keep all patients informed throughout the build of any changes or disruption to services. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
