Seven views around Martock

Discussions with many people in the village confirmed that parishioners want to retain and protect the rural character of the area.

One way of doing this is to try and ensure that its essential character was not harmed unnecessarily be development. People told us about the views they enjoy when they walk our many footpaths. They sent photographs and descriptions.

This map shows seven key views that epitomise the rural nature of the Parish and should be protected by a specific policy in the Neighbourhood Plan.
