buildings rather than the classical Y shape.
Clutton Union comprised the parishes of Cameley, Camerton, Chelwood, Chew Magna,
Chew Stoke, Chilcompton, Clutton, Compton Martin, Farnborough, Farrington
Gurney, East Harptree, West Harptree, Hinton Blewitt, High Littleton, Litton,
Nempnett Thrubwell, Midsomer Norton, Norton Hawkfield, Norton Malreward, Paulton,
Publow, St Thomas in Pensford, Stanton Drew, Ston Easton, Stowey, Timsbury,
Ubley and North Widcombe.
A new Infirmary building was erected in 1881 but standing empty at the time
of the census.
