Somerton is split into two smaller villages: Upper Somerton with a population of approximately 50 and Somerton with a population of about 20. Upper Somerton is at the top of one valley and has St. Margaret's Church, a phone box and post box. Somerton is at the bottom of the same valley and has only a post box.
The villages comprise rural houses and farms with some council houses. Its nearest villages are Hartest, Brockley and Hawkedon. There was once quite the rivalry between Hartest and Somerton, and a giant stone found in Somerton was stolen by Hartest and rolled down the valley where it still sits on their village green.
