"HARDINGTON, a parish in the hundred of Kilmersdon, county Somerset, 4½ miles N.W. of Frome, its post town and railway station. It is a very small parish, and the land is chiefly in pasture. The soil and subsoil are clay and stone. There is no village. The living is a rectory annexed to that of Hemington, in the diocese of Bath and Wells. The church is a small stone structure, dedicated to St. Mary, and has recently been restored. It has a small tower, containing one bell. Hardington Park is the seat of Bamfylde, Lord Poltimore, in whose family it has remained 450 years."
