About Membury

The village of Membury sits within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just to the north east of the historic Beckford Bridge, which crosses the River Yarty and is the oldest packhorse bridge in East Devon.

In Membury you can find a fine 13th century church with its monument to Sir Shilston Calmady, who was killed in a skirmish near the village in February 1646.

Thomas Wakley who was the founding editor of the medical journal, was born in Membury in 1795.

Membury is just 4 miles north west of the historic market town of Axminster, and 7 miles west of Chard.
