Somerset Bus Partnership

Buses of Somerset timetable changes applicable from Sunday 14th April 2024.

Norton Fitzwarren Parish Councillor and SBP representative Dee Childs will a hosting a bus information desk at Norton Fitzwarren precinct on Saturday 13th April from 10am.   Full information regarding the following day's implementation of significant changes to our local bus services will be available here, along with the opportunity to ask us questions about the new arrangements.

We intend to publish full revised timetables within the May 2024 edition of Norton Community News.  At the time of writing Buses of Somerset have yet to publish their new timetables but have communicated some of the pertinent details:

Route 25 from Taunton to Wiveliscombe and Dulverton, via Norton Fitzwarren (B3227):

Timetable expected to be completely revised with a few less journeys in each direction.

Route 28 from Taunton to Minehead via Cross Keys and Norton Manor camp (A358):

Weekday 30 minute frequency is being reduced to a 45 minute frequency.  Saturday services will continue with their 30 minute headway and Sunday services will stay on a 90 minute headway.

Route 28A from Taunton to Minehead via Norton Fitzwarren and Cotford St Luke:

Some of the daytime 28 services will be diverted to operate via Norton Fitzwarren (B3227) and Cotford St Luke in both directions, following the route of our existing bus 28 evening services. These services, both daytime and evening, will be designated route 28A to distinguish them from the 28 that runs via the A358 past Norton Manor Camp.

The 28A is possibly going to run on Sundays, potentially restoring Norton Fitzwarren's 7 day a week bus service, although this is yet to be confirmed officially.

The 28A will introduce daytime journey opportunities from Norton Fitzwarren village centre to Minehead via Bishops Lydeard, Williton, Watchet.  Existing evening services will continue to operate that same route and are being retimed to make better train service connections at Taunton Station.

The new 28A daytime services are designed to compensate for our reduced 25 frequency between Norton Fitzwarren and Taunton.

Further information will be published on-line as it becomes available and will be in a pull-out section of the Norton News.

 The basketball, 5 a-side football games area is open. The tennis net has now been   reinstated and the tennis court is open.

 Both are free to use as a village amenity, there is no need to book a slot. Access is via

 the playing field at Stembridge Way, cars can be parked in the area by the gate.  


 The football pitch will continue to be monitored by Carrick Sports for about 12 months 

 while the grass grows.  It should be ready for use in September 2024.
