Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ubley is a small village and civil parish within the Chew Valley in Bath and North East Somerset about 8 miles (12.9 km) south of Bristol and 10 miles (16.1 km) from Bath. It is just south-east of Blagdon Lake on the A368 between Compton Martin and Blagdon.There is some evidence of a burial tumulus from neolithic times above Ubley.In a charter of King Edgar, between 959 and 975 the name of the village was recorded as Hubbanlege.Ubley was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Tumbeli, meaning 'The rolling meadow' from the Old English tumb and leah. An alternative explanation is that it comes from Ubba’s leah or clearing in the woodland. A further explanation of the name is that in Roman times when Charterhouse Roman Town was producing lead and silver it was known as Veb, and as V and U are interchangeable in Latin, Ubley derives from Veb-ley, and was originally a settlement where Romano-British lead miners lived.The parish was part of the hundred of Chewton.
