The village of Misterton is situated on the A356 between Crewkerne and South Perrott.
Early records go back beyond Doomsday but it is clear for all to see, that much of the development took place at the end of the 19th Century after the advent of Railway Communications.
The result is an imbalanced map work with much of the village in ribbon development along a narrow road which has since become the main thoroughfare for increasing traffic moving from Dorset to the Bristol area.
Effective detours around Misterton simply do not exist- the junction at Hazelbury Plucknett where the A3066 meets the A30 is not suitable for HGV’s.
Thus Misterton is destined to play host to HGV’s for some years to come with little or no scope within our Village to alleviate the effects.
