Nunney Village Somerset England.
Nunney is a village and civil parish near Frome in the Mendip local government district within the English county of Somerset. The parish includes the hamlet of Holwell.
The name of the village comes from Old English and means Nunna’s island.
Today, the tourist attractions are the ruins of Nunney Castle, a historic church, and ducks wandering the streets near the river. The village hall is host to Nunney Acoustic Cafe which provides live music, homemade food, a bar and children’s art activities on the second Sunday of each month (except July and August).
On 30 September 2007, Nunney was the subject of a BBC Radio 4 report, asking whether “the prettiest village in England” is a place where we can learn “how to mend our broken society”.
Evidence of Roman settlement has been provided by the discovery of a hoard of Roman coins in 1869 at Westdown Farm and a villa with a mosaic floor.
Nunney is mentioned as a manor belonging to William de Moyon in the Domesday Book in 1086, but the book does not mention a castle.
The parish was part of the hundred of Frome.
For many years, from the medieval period until the 19th century, Nunney was the site of water-powered mills owned initially by the Hoddinotts and then by James Fussell.
