Ashbrittle (pop c 200) is equidistant between Wellington and Wiveliscombe, situated near the old Western canal.

A series of country lanes winding through the heart of the English county of Somerset lead to the village of Ashbrittle. This small village holds an ancient treasure in its churchyard: a 3000 year old example of the English Yew, Taxus baccata. The tree was mature when Stonehenge was in use, making the 15th century church near where it grows a youngster in comparison. As a plaque near the tree declares, "Generations of local people have cherished this tree, one of the oldest living things in Britain."

The village hosts a film club and is one of the constituents of the Ashbrittle, Stawley and Clayhanger Cricket Club. The Village Hall is in active use, and hosts occasional musical and entertainment events. There is a fifteenth century church at Ashbrittle, St John the Baptist, whose churchyard is home to one of the oldest living things in the UK, a 3000-year-old English Yew, named one of the "Fifty Great British Trees" chosen to mark the Queen's Golden Jubilee.
