Somerset Wood WW1

The Somerset Wood commemorates the fallen from WW1, and is a Somerset County Council initiative.

A Dedication Ceremony was held on 9 November 2018 to mark the Centenary of the end of WW1.

The initial planting took place in January/February 2019 with 1600 whips planted.  One for each fallen person. 

The parishes of Cheddon Fitzpaine & West Monkton will administer and manage the maintenance of the wood 'on behalf of' SCC.  Financial donations to SCC to be ringfenced for this project.
