Welcome to Blackdown Hills Parish Network

The Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the Somerset/Devon border, is a special place for those born here,  for those who have chosen to live and work here and also for the many visitors who enjoy their unique character. The hills stretch from a steep wooded north-facing scarp which dips southwards as a flat-topped plateau, dissected by deep secret valleys.
