Location description from owner

The Somerset region

Somerset is a ceremonial and non-metropolitan county in South West England.

It borders Bristol and Gloucestershire to the north, Wiltshire to the east, Dorset to the south-east, and Devon to the south-west. It is partly bounded to the north and west by the Bristol Channel and the estuary of the River Severn.

Its traditional northern border is the River Avon, but the administrative boundary has crept southwards with the creation and expansion of the City of Bristol, and latterly the county of Avon and its successor unitary authorities to the north.

Somerset's county town, Taunton, is in the south.

Somerset is a rural county of rolling hills such as the Blackdown Hills, Mendip Hills, Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park, and large flat expanses of land including the Somerset Levels. There is evidence of human occupation from Palaeolithic times, and of subsequent settlement in the Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods.

The county played a significant part in the consolidation of power and rise of King Alfred the Great, and later in the English Civil War and the Monmouth Rebellion.

Agriculture is a major business in the county. Farming of sheep and cattle, including for wool and the county's famous cheeses (most notably Cheddar), are traditional and contemporary, as is the more unusual cultivation of willow for basket weaving.

Apple orchards were once plentiful, and Somerset is still known for the production of strong cider.

Somerton

Somerton is an ancient Saxon town and was the possession of the Saxon kings. This was true until well after the Middle Ages. During the Saxon inhabitation, the town was sparsely populated. It was only during the Roman period that the town grew bigger and bigger and eventually became the capital of Wessex. The first signs of Roman inhabitation in the area are dated to around A.D. 48. The district was scattered with Roman villas, remains of which have been found in nearby Pitney and Low Ham.

The West Saxons colonised the town during the 100 years after the demise of the Roman Empire in Britain. They soon pillaged and destroyed the Roman villas in the area.

During the decades that followed, Somerton has constantly been populated, but it has never really seen the 'glory days' of these periods of wealth and prosperity.

It is no wonder that Somerton has been a populated town for over 2000 years. Somerton is an ideal area to build a town; the steep slopes of the valley of the river Cary, the borders of Sedgemoor to the north and the narrower cutting of the Mill Stream to the south. These all make ideal physical features for securing a town, as well as providing a flood free source of water.
