Brushford Origins

Situated on the Southern Edge of Exmoor National Park, Brushford is an ancient Somerset Parish. Named as Brigeford in the Domesday Book survey of 1086 (see below), the village boasts a 13th Century Church,said to have been visited by Elizabeth I. Indeed, the old oak tree in the churchyard is one of the oldest oaks on Exmoor and was referred to as “the old oak” in Elizabethan times!
