Brompton Regis is a village and civil parish in the West Somerset district of Somerset, England about 5mi north-east of Dulverton. It is situated on the River Pulham in the Brendon Hills within the Exmoor National Park, close to Wimbleball Lake, a water supply reservoir constructed in the 1970s and completed in 1979. According to the 2011 census the village had a population of 449. The parish boundary is marked by the River Exe which is crossed by the medieval Chilly Bridge and Hele Bridge. The Haddeo is crossed by Bury Bridge.The parish includes the village of Withiel Florey, where the Church of St Mary Magdalene has 12th-century origins and has been designated as a Grade II* listed building, and the hamlets of Bury, Gupworthy and Hartford.HistoryBefore the Norman Conquest the manor was held by Gytha Thorkelsdóttir and was seized by William the Conqueror. The parish of Withiel Florey was part of the Taunton Deane Hundred, while Brompton Regis was part of the Williton and Freemanners Hundred. By the later 12th century Brompton Regis had been granted to William de Say, who founded Barlynch Priory in the west of the parish.
