English: Peasedown St John (commonly referred to as just Peasedown) is one of the largest villages in Somerset, England. Located on a hilltop roughly 7 km south-southwest of the city of Bath, Peasedown used to be a coal mining village and includes Ashgrove on its southern side. When the last of the mines were shut in the 1950s it became a commuter village for both Bath and, to a lesser extent, Bristol. Its size has been augmented by substantial housing developments in the 1960s and 1970s and more recently in the late 1990s.
