Welcome to the Beacon Hill Society website

A prominent high point of the east Mendip Hills, Beacon Hill draws the eye. But it bears closer inspection too. A Roman road runs through it. The land is scattered with Bronze Age tumuli and scarred by quarrying activities spanning thousands of years. Deer graze beneath majestic beech trees, silhouetted against far reaching views across the Somerset levels and the bluebells are well known as one of the best shows in the district. It is a special place.

The Beacon Hill Society continues to be concerned with the future of the wood, particularly how best to preserve and enhance it. The new challenge is to maintain its wild charms yet encourage sympathetic use, so that as many people as possible can benefit from access to Beacon Hill Woods.
