Historical notes – The Parish Church of St Julian at Wellow has origins before the 12th century, although the present building dates from 1372. Other notable historic landmarks include a low water crossing (ford) and late medieval packhorse bridge over Wellow Brook.
Southwards of Wellow village is the Neolithic chambered tomb known as Stoney Littleton Long Barrow. The Long Barrow, which is also known as Bath Tumulus and the Wellow Tumulus, is a Neolithic chambered tomb with multiple burial chambers. The site was excavated by John Skinner in 1816-17.
In the 1880s and 1890s small mines extracting and drying Fuller’s earth were situated between Wellow and Stoney Littleton and also on Hassage Hill.
Wellow once had a station on the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway. Opened on 20 July 1874, the station consisted of two platforms, a goods yard and sidings. The station closed to goods in 1963: passenger services were withdrawn when the SDJR closed on 7 March 1966. In addition to the station, Wellow could be accessed from the Somerset Coal Canal via the Radstock arm.
