Porlock Village Hall

Porlock Village Hall is situated at the western end of the High Street at the bottom of

Porlock Hill opposite The Ship Inn.

The original hall, now the Large Hall, was built by public subscription and fund raising

with the foundation stone laid by Mary, Countess of Lovelace, in 1925. The small hall

and adjacent facilities were added in 1974 with a generous gift from Mr R Woodrow and

donations from the people of Porlock.

The Hall is affiliated to the Community Council of Somerset and was awarded a "Hallmark One" certificate in 2004.


The Car Park, adjacent to the hall, is leased to, and operated by, Porlock Parish

Council primarily for the use of users of the hall. It can accommodate 30+ cars and 3

spaces are designated for disabled parking.

By prior agreement with Porlock Parish Council and the Village Hall Management

Committee, access to the car park may be controlled by the hirer of the halls during

the period of hire.

The Large Hall, with its own entrance, is 16.5m x 8.5m (54' x 28') with bench seating

along 2 sides and a permanent stage accessed by moveable steps. The hall is

equipped with a hearing loop and speakers, 2 wired microphones and 1 radio

microphone. A CD player is available.
