"BROCKLEY, a parish in the hundred of Chewton, in the county of Somerset, 9 miles to the S.W. of Bristol. It is situated in a romantic and beautiful country, not far from the coast of the Bristol Channel, and is crossed by the Bristol and Exeter railway. Near the village, on the south-east, is Brockley Coomb, a deep narrow glen, of singular beauty, sunk between steep rocks, rising at some points to the height of 300 feet. It is adorned with many noble trees, and all the fissures and ledges of the cliffs are enriched With a great variety of mosses and other forms of vegetation. Lead ore is found here, and there are masses of columnar basalt." From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson © 2003
