Mosterton is a village in west Dorset, England, three miles south of Crewkerne. The village has a population of 626 (As of 2001).
Home of the Admiral Hood pub, Eeles Pottery, Parrett and Axe Primary School and St. Mary's Church.
The village is bisected by the river Axe, from which the local primary school takes its name, along with the river Parrett that flows through the nearby village of South Perrott. The village is a linear settlement, grown along the A3066.
The church of St. Mary was rebuilt on a new site in 1833. The interior of the church is quite understated, but does however retain its original fittings. The focus of the church is the stained glass window behind the altar. It was installed in 1975 and includes a combine harvester and a tractor, depicting the rural background of the local community.
The Admiral Hood pub, named after Admiral Samuel Hood, 1st Viscount Hood (1724-1816), was rebuilt in its original style after a gutting fire in 1955. Before the reconstruction it was called the New Inn, but on completion it was decided to honour the Hood family who had occupied a Georgian house that was originally on the site of the New Inn, who had a long naval history and whose name has been used on many battleships.
