Kilve lies between the Quantocks Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the coast, which has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is a welcoming village, with a beach celebrated for its fossils, wonderful and varied walks, cricket teams playing on a ground which must be one of the most beautifully situated in England, a pub and a well-stocked shop and post office. The Village Hall hosts all kinds of activities and entertainment, with something for everyone.

The Slinky Service is an accessible bus service funded through Somerset County Council for people unable to access conventional transport. Slinky is for anyone of any age who does not have access to their own vehicle or who would have difficulty using public transport due to lack of availability or through health or other problems. There are two buses operating in West Somerset covering different areas on different days of the week. Kilve is served on Mondays between 9:15AM and 4PM as well as there being a Saturday service that can pick up and drop off anywhere in West Somerset, subject to availability.

The popular shoppers’ parking permits in West Somerset are being changed to make life easier for people planning a trip to town.

Until now the 12-month permits were issued at the start of the financial year in April with motorists paying the £35 fee. The system did not make allowance for people to flex the arrangement to suit their needs – for example buying a permit in June, paying the full fee and the pass then expiring at the end of March.

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.
