  Hoocombe Common lies on the banks of nearby Badgworthy Water and has been given the nickname ‘Doone Valley’ in homage to R.D. Blackmore’s locally based novel ‘Lorna Doone’ (1896). A memorial to the author stands proudly beside the Water.

Brendon’s church was moved stone by stone from nearby Cheriton and rebuilt here in the 18th century.
