Things to do: historic sites
Muchelney is a clustered village and civil parish in Somerset, England, extending for from the south bank of the River Parrett and that has a clustered centre. This is 1mi south of Huish and Langport and 4mi south west of Somerton in the South Somerset district. Its elevations range from 8 to 12 metres AOD. Muchelney has some orchards and a copse of remaining woodland in the centre-south covering between 2 and 5% of the land.Narrowly buffered by its fields is the hamlet: Muchelney Ham in the south-east of the parish and both Thorney, Kingsbury Episcopi and Drayton have their similar size clusters 1.5mi away.Established by the early medieval era, the community today has 78 homes, several of which have businesses such as farms. In culture, the mid-summer Lowland Games have been held nearby annually since 1984.HistoryThe village was recorded as Micelenie in the Domesday book meaning 'the increasingly great island' from the Old English miclian and from the Norsk Øe. The -ey or -y suffix served as the old English designation for "island", and thus is common to many of the villages in this area of the Somerset Levels, which stood as islands just above the marshes, which have since been drained.
