Parish Council Meeting 15 January 2019

Ashill is a small village and civil parish in Somerset, England, situated 7 miles south of Taunton, and three miles north-west of Ilminster in the South Somerset District. The Parish includes the hamlet of Windmill Hill and has a population of 529.


Ashill is mentioned in the Domesday book for its extensive woodland. The manor passed from the de Vaux family to Sir Thomas Moulton by 1317, and then through the Stretche and Beauchamp families to the Spekes who built Jordans as their mansion, which was demolished in the 1960s, although the grotto/summer house (dating from 1828) in the grounds survives.
