Welcome to Long Load
Long Load is a village and parish in Somerset, England, situated on the River Yeo 5 miles (8.0 km) south of Somerton in the South Somerset district.
The village has 159 dwellings including 29 residential park homes. The population is around 447.
The village follows the B3165 along a spur from Martock to Somerton. It is on a geological junction between two types of stone so many of the houses are of grey blue lias stone while others are of golden hamstone.
The village is surrounded by low lying areas called levels which frequently flood during winter. Indeed the word Load is derived from an Old English word Lade for watercourse.
