The History of High Ham

"High Ham, a parish in the hundred of Whitley, county Somerset, 5 miles East of Somerton, 6 miles South-East of Street, 11 miles West of Bridgwater, and 4 miles North of Langport, its post town and railway station. It is situated on the high road from Wells and Bridgwater, and contains the hamlets of Beer, Henley, Paradise, and Wag. The soil is clayey, and subsoil limestone, which is quarried for building and for burning into lime. The church is an ancient structure dedicated to St. Andrew, with a tower containing five bells.
