Somerset Heritage Centre
The Martock Pinnacle was set up in 1978 by two Parish Councillors, George Howard and A J Porter, to disseminate information of local interest not included in the Church Magazine of the time. Financed by advertising income and produced by volunteers, six issues of the Pinnacle were distributed each year to some 1,500 houses in Martock, Coat, Hurst and Bower Hinton. The advent of free newspapers and a broader range of contents in the Church Magazine made the Pinnacle less essential and publication ceased in December 1982.
