Burtle  Somerset


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Burtle like this:

BURTLE, a chapelry in Moorlinch parish, Somerset: 3½ miles SSW of Edington-Road r. station, and 5½ ENE of Bridgewater. Post Town, Chilton, under Bridgewater. Pop., 248. Houses, 47. It was constituted in 1856. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Bath and Wells. Value, £100. Patron, miss Field. The church is very good.

The location is that named as "Edington Burtle" on our New Popular edition map, which is called simply "Burtle" on the modern 1:25,000 map. Additional information about this locality is available for Moorlinch
