"WITHYCOMBE, a parish in the hundred of Carhampton, county Somerset, 2½ miles S.E. of Dunster, and 5 from Minehead. The village is situated about a quarter of a mile off the road between Dunster and Taunton, and has a Druid circle at High Dumbledon, formed of rude stones, with two cairns near it. The West Somerset hounds meet here. The soil is a mixture of stonebrash and red sand. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Bath and Wells, value £220. The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas. The register commences in 1769, but is imperfect. There is a chapel for Bible Christians, and a Sunday and parochial school. H. F. Luttrell, Esq., is lord of the manor."
