Ubley (grid reference ST529582) is a small village within the Chew Valley in Bath and North East Somerset about 8 miles south of Bristol and 10 miles from Bath. It is just south east of Blagdon Lake on the A368 between Compton Martin and Blagdon.

There is some evidence of a burial Tumulus from neolithic times above Ubley,[1] and mining for ochre and manganese during the 19th century.[2]

Ubley was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Tumbeli, meaning 'The rolling meadow' from the Old English tumb and leah.[3] An alternative explanation is that it comes from Ubba’s leah or clearing in the woodland.[4]

Also in the village are a primary school and village hall, which is the venue for the monthly Ubley Publey and annual Chew Valley Beer Festival.


[edit] Government and politics

Ubley is part of the Chew Valley South Ward which is represented by one councillor on the Bath and North East Somerset Unitary Authority which has wider responsibilities for services such as education, refuse, tourism etc. The village is a part of the Wansdyke constituency, which will become North East Somerset at the next general election and part of the South West England constituency of the European Parliament.

[edit] Demographics

According to the 2001 Census The Chew Valley South Ward (which includes Nempnett Thrubwell), had 1,032 residents, living in 411 households, with an average age of 42.1 years. Of these 74% of residents describing their health as 'good', 20% of 16-74 year olds had no qualifications; and the area had an unemployment rate of 1.7% of all economically active people aged 16-74. In the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2004, it was ranked at 22,950 out of 32,482 wards in England, where 1 was the most deprived LSOA and 32,482 the least deprived.[5]

[edit] Church

The village has a small medieval Church originating from the 13th Century with later additions, dedicated to St. Bartholomew. The Church has no fixed pews. Features include a Jacobean pulpit and a chained copy of the ‘Paraphrases of Erasmus’ dated 1552.[6] The church is a grade I listed building (Church of St. Bartholomew at Images of England)

[edit] War memorial

The village war memorial is 2.5 metres high and has a three stepped base. It commemorates the five people from the village who died in World War I.[7]
