The name Neroche comes from the ancient Forest of Neroche which in former times covered a large area to the south of Taunton.

There is no village or parish called Neroche.

Our website serves the local government area of Neroche Parish Council. It administers four civil parishes, Bickenhall, Curland, Orchard Portman with Thurlbear, and Staple Fitzpaine which are named after local villages and hamlets.

Use the map to know which parish you live in. You can contact your parish councilor by going the Parish Council page on the website.
