HINTON CHARTERHOUSE is situated in North Somerset in an area of outstanding natural beauty . At a height of 150 metres above sea level it is the highest village in the area. It is on the B3110( see also map) about five miles south of the famous Roman town of Bath with its Roman Baths, many museums and renown architectural features such as the Royal Crescent, the Circus, the Abbey and Pultney Bridge. The Parish now has about 200 houses. The village history is closely related to a Carthusian Priory that was set up just to the north. Despite its size the village boasts two Inns (one with accommodation), one shop and post office, one twelfth century church, a Memorial hall, a cricket pitch and a Millennium Green with play area. A schematic map showing the location of main features is in the section on The Village Today.
