Isle Abbotts is located in South Somerset about 8 miles to the East of Taunton and 4 miles to the North of Ilminster. At the heart of the village lies the Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin, dating back to the 13th Century with a magnificent tower added around 1510. Major restoration work took place in 2006 and the tower is now restored to its former glory.

HIGHWAYS UPDATE, B3168 THE BEACON - ILMINSTER

I am pleased to inform you that the period of on-site investigations has been completed, and the remediation design proposal approved. In summary, the following major works are required, at two locations, prior to the re-opening of the B3168, The Beacon.

Carriageway failure site 1;

Carriageway failure site 2;

We have engaged our service provider to mobilise and be on site as quickly as possible. That said, I am sure you can appreciate that there are extensive works required on site, and they will take a considerable period of time to be completed. However, I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that every effort is being made to re-open the road before Christmas.

I hope that this information is helpful.
Regards
Neil McWilliams
Highway Service Manager
