The Domesday Book listed Kilve back in 1086 as Clive, proably after the cliffs that dominate the coastline along this part of Somerset.
Over 925 years later, the population at Kilve stands at close to 400. Sitting in the designated Quantocks Area of Outstanding National Beauty and with a rich tapestry of interesting buildings, heritage and wildlife - Kilve's history has made it the place it is today.
Kilve Village Hall offers a wealth of entertainment to locals and visitors alike, as well as being a desirable 'venue for hire' in it's own right. This classic Victorian building boasts a main hall with stage, an additional annex 'The Denovan Room', kitchen, lavatories and free car parking facilities.
