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 Hinkley Point C CIM Fund considered our application for match funding to provide an independent superfast broadband solution for Holford, Kilve and East Quantoxhead at their meeting in December. The Obligations Board assessing the application, although admitting the application “ticked all the boxes”, rejected the application on the basis that the BT/Connecting Devon and Somerset (CDS) project were now considering the whole of our area and that specific taxpayer funding had been agreed by WSC specifically for Holford, Kilve and East Quantoxhead. They suggested a resubmission in 12 months depending on CDS reviews.

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.
