Set in the foothills of the Brendon Hills on the southern slope of Croydon Hill, Luxborough enjoys a peaceful and beautiful setting. Luxborough is a small village that is divided into the hamlets of Churchtown, Kingsbridge and Pooltown, which all lie within a mile of each other. ...In years gone by people came to the Luxborough area to mine iron ore and it was sent via the West Somerset Mineral Railway to Watchet on the coastline. In the 19th century the school was reported to have 200 pupils from the village and the iron mines in the Brendon Hills. The ancient Church of St Mary in Churchtown is believed to date from Norman times, or some believe it may be Saxon times due to a Cross in the Churchyard. Today, St Mary's is a Grade II listed building. Roadwater is situated 4 miles to the east and the popular village of Dunster is 4.5 miles to the north. Roadwater has a local shop, post office, village hall and an Inn and is situated approximately 4 miles from Williton, which has a larger range of shops providing for day to day needs. Bridleways and footpaths crisscross near and through Luxborough, including the famous Coleridge Way which passes through the village.
