    The Heritage Centre has an email address: archives@somerset.gov.uk.
  • Old Maps Online has a further selection of local maps. Some of these do not expand sufficiently to identify rural places.
  • A History of Britain Online is a compilation of gazetteers which may provide more information about very small places which are missing from Wikipedia. In the case of Somerset it refers to A History of the County of Somerset by R. W. Dunning (editor), published as part of the Victoria County History series in 2006.
