Brent Knoll is situated in the South West of England on the edge of Sedgemoor and within three miles of the Bristol Channel. It is an attractive village which clings round the western slopes of the Knoll, an outlier of the nearby Mendip Hills. From its summit of 137 meters, (449 feet) above sea level, it gives a spectacular panorama of the surrounding area, including the Bristol Channel, The Mendip, The Welsh, The Quantock and The Polden Hills, Glastonbury Tor and Cheddar Gorge. The M5 Motorway skirts the Knoll's eastern flank. The London to Penzance main line railway passes north-south to the west of the village.

Some 4,000 years BC, Bronze Age people lived on or near the Knoll which became an Iron Age Fort about 2,000BC. Later the Romans used its summit as a fortification. The surrounding area was held later by the Glastonbury Estates until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in AD 1,536. During the Second World War the Home Guard had a gun emplacement on the summit. The population of the village in 2,001 was 1,250.

Originally a farming village, Brent Knoll is now home to several businesses and amenities which can also be accessed through the separate links.

The architecture of the village is varied and includes seventeenth century farm cottages, now modernised, plus up-to-date housing.

A large information board by the Village Green gives more details of aspects of Brent Knoll.
