The parish of Lyng serves a diverse population of around 350, and the ancient parish church of St Bartholomew overlooks the beautiful Somerset Levels with its vibrant farming communities of East Lyng, West Lyng and Outwood. There is a strong sense of community, warmth and friendship, which newcomers to the villages soon experience. The residents of the villages include people from all walks of life: a large number are retired, some work locally on farms, others in the nearby towns and villages, others are self-employed. Lyng has recently seen a number of younger families moving in.
