The present population of Crowcombe is about 500 and the parish covers the hamlets of Crowcombe Heathfield, Flaxpool, Halsway, Lawford and Triscombe. It has one shop, The Carew Arms (of course), a local first school and a wine merchant as well as several small businesses. Extraordinarily similar to the last few hundred years. Despite the lack of shopping facilities, it is certainly worth stopping here to view the architecture and take in the ambience of this ancient village. There is a free public car park behind the church house.
