Our village is a real community and one of the aims of this website is to keep everyone, whether residents or visitors, informed of the events and activities that go to make the village what it is. Buckland Dinham has been witness to over a thousand years of recorded history and perhaps a little more if you count the archaeology present in the area. We are located between Frome and Radstock in Somerset on the side of a south facing hill on the A362 surrounded by beautiful Somerset countryside. The village has many active interest groups, centred around the village hall, a beautiful 12th century church, and a vibrant pub, The Bell Inn.
