Wrington is a village and both a civil and an ecclesiastical parish in North Somerset, England. It lies in the valley of the Congresbury Yeo river, about 9mi east of Weston-super-Mare and 3mi south-east of Yatton. It has a population of 2,633. Both parishes include the nearby village of Redhill.HistoryThe village dates back to Roman times and there is strong evidence of Saxon occupation.Wrington was part of the hundred of Brent-cum-Wrington.Wrington cottage hospital opened in 1864 and had 24 patients admitted in its first year of operation. The first surgeon was Horace Swete who wrote the Habdy Book of Cottage Hositals. It was also referred to by Florence Nightingale in 1869.GovernanceThe parish council has responsibility for local issues, including setting an annual precept (local rate) to cover the council's operating costs and producing annual accounts for public scrutiny. The parish council evaluates local planning applications and works with the local police, district council officers, and neighbourhood watch groups on matters of crime, security, and traffic. The parish council's role also includes initiating projects for the maintenance and repair of parish facilities, such as the village hall or community centre, playing fields and playgrounds, as well as consulting with the district council on the maintenance, repair, and improvement of highways, drainage, footpaths, public transport, and street cleaning. Conservation matters (including trees and listed buildings) and environmental issues are also of interest to the council.
