About us.

Rooksbridge and East Brent
A rural community in the heart of Somerset dairy country. 

Our village which is part of the parish of East Brent, sits quietly on the edge of the Somerset levels, right on the A38 which is a primary route to the South west.

We are situated about 4 miles. N. of Highbridge, 7 miles. S.E. of Weston super mare and 6 miles S.W. of Cheddar. And within easy reach of all parts of the South and West.

In Ashbourne, Derbyshire there are 2 houses side by side, one called “East Brent” and the other called “Rooksbridge”, which were named by the Wood family when they returned to Derbyshire in the 1890s.
