Wiveliscombe is a small town and civil parish in Somerset, England, situated 9mi west of Taunton in the Taunton Deane district. The town has a population of 2,893. The Square, fronted by several Listed structures, held the former market. The parish includes the nearby hamlet of Maundown.HistoryThe Anglo-Saxon settlement, the combe or valley of a certain Wifele, was mentioned in the Domesday survey (1086), when it was quite large, consisting of twenty-seven households, with an annual value to the lord, the Bishop of Wells St Andrew, of £25. During the Middle Ages the bishops maintained a residence here.Settlement in the neighborhood is of long standing. North west of the town are Clatworthy Camp an Iron age hill fort and Clatworthy Reservoir. Nearby is Elworthy Barrows an unfinished Iron Age hill fort rather than Bronze Age barrows. The Neolithic hillfort at King's Castle is 1km east of the town. A rectangular enclosure south of Manor Farm is the remains of a Roman fort; in the 18th century its vestiges of fortifications and foundations identified Roman origin, and it was locally called "the Castle". In the 18th century a hoard of about 1600 Roman coins of third and fourth century dates was uncovered.
