Wedmore Applause

How delightful, how could you want more?

I’m speaking of course, of little Wedmore

A gem, an oasis twixt Wells and Cheddar

Then there’s Glastonbury, a special treasure


Other choices are just a short drive away

Even if ‘Wedmorians’ can be lured away


The four of us two’Wedmorians’ and we

Roamed around with adventurous hiliarity.


We’d seen the towns with the tourist image

But happier, returning home to the village.

KAJ Nov' 2016

A past visitor - new to our village kindly provided the following poem:

Jan' 2013


It’s tucked away in a valley resplendent, self contained
Once off the M5 you wonder if you will ever arrive
And in giving up a stranger couldn’t be blamed
But patience has its own reward, a village that thrives.
