Festivals & Heritage

According to tradition, Priddy Sheep Fair moved from Wells in 1348 because of the Black Death, although evidence has been found of a Fair being held at Priddy before that.

There is a local legend, which says that as long as the hurdle stack remains in the village, so will the Fair.

The Fair is held on the nearest Wednesday to 21st August, although originally it was held on the feast of St Lawrence the Martyr on the10th August
