WSNTA Winchester Arms

We will meet at the Winchester Arms Pub, Trull, for lunch at 12 noon (eating at 12.30) after which we will make our way to the farmhouse.

Getting there by car from Taunton town centre, follow signs to Exeter and then to Trull, straight across the A38 at the top of Compass Hill. Trull Road goes due south. Shortly after passing Queens College on the right, Immediately before the Trull name-sign, fork left into Wild Oak Lane, signposted Trull and Pitminster. Eventually a T-junction is reached by All Saints Parish Church opposite Trull School. Turn Left along Church Road, and the Winchester Arms is on the left, with the turning into the car park immediately before the pub.

 
 

 
 

 

Chilliswood Farmhouse is a Grade 2* listed building of great interest and charm - The core is medieval, but it was substantially rebuilt in the late 16th and 17th centuries and partly remodelled about 1830.

It has been superbly restored by the owners, Anne and Robin Leaman with the advice and support of English Heritage. The 19th century horse-engine house, “The Round House”, has been converted into a separate dwelling.

The Leamans have researched the history of Chilliswood in considerable detail and many fascinating documents are on display.

After an introductory talk they will give us a tour of the property

A Cream tea will be provided after the tour.

Please note: Some of the floors are uneven and there is a steep flight of stairs.

Getting there by car on leaving the pub car park turn right and follow the road to the main road junction. Turn right and then take the next left in to Dipford Road, sign-posted Angersleigh. Follow this for half a mile. Just before you reach a fork in the road, look out for the sign for “Chilliswood Eggs” down a lane on the right, opposite Higher Dipford Farm. The lane soon turns left. Follow this to Chilliswood Farmhouse, on the left.
