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.

Comments are invited by 5th January 2015 on the attached proposal for traffic calming works on the A39 Main Road, Kilve.

Kilve PC hope that as many parishioners as possible will review and comment on the proposals which will also be displayed on the village notice boards.

The plan can be downloaded from: Consultation A39 Main Road Kilve (260k pdf)

On 3rd November 2014 Somerset County Council started a 10 week consultation on a series of proposals to make changes to Somerset's Library Services in 2015 and early 2016. The proposals have been developed in order to ensure that Somerset has modern Library Services that respond to changes in customer expectations and demography, reflect the public's strong preference that everything is done to keep local library buildings open, and make savings of almost £500,000.

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.
