Welcome to South PethertonSouth Petherton is a village and civil parish on the River Parrett in the South Somerset district of Somerset, England. It is 5 miles (8 km) east of Ilminster and 5 miles (8 km) north west of Crewkerne. It had a population of 3,367 in 2011. The parish includes the hamlets of Yeabridge, Compton Durville, South Harp, and Over Stratton, and is approximately 2 miles (3 km) from East Lambrook, Martock and Lopen.
It is distinctive for the traditional hamstone construction of many of its buildings. In 2005 South Petherton was awarded ‘Somerset Village of the Year’ in a national competition. Historically South Petherton was a market town, but these days is regarded to be a village, with many of its ancient functions having ended by around 1870.
The village's name may come from the Old English word Pared meaning boundary and the Saxon word ton meaning settlement, forming ’Paredton’.
Petherton Folk Fest
It is with much sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of this year’s Folk Fest, which was to be held in South Petherton on Saturday,13th June.
These are extreme circumstances that we all find ourselves in and therefore the committee unanimously decided that there was no alternative but to cancel/postpone the event to next year.
We promise that we will be back bigger and better on Saturday, 19th June 2021!
A massive thanks to our committee, sponsors, artists, dancers, stall holders and all those who work so hard to make this such a successful event.
Stay safe and looking forward to seeing you all next year, if not before.
Kind Regards, Pete Wheeler (Chair)
