Holcombe is situated about 12 miles south of Bath, in Somerset. 'Holcombe' is descriptive of the original village, i.e. A dingle or enclosed valley in the hills. 'Hole-in-the Combe'. The land is mostly pasture; the soil, rich and red, abounds in coal. The inhabitants used natural products of the soil for agriculture, coalmining, iron smelting, pottery, glass, vine growing, brewing, silk winding, wool combing and dyeing. In recent centuries, the industries were dairy farming, quarrying, cement and timber works, brewing and coal mining.
