    6 Quirky Facts About Bruton

    1. The Greater Charter
      Bruton has three prestigious boarding schools. In 1936, a teacher at King’s School (somewhat fittingly and remarkably) found a 1297 copy of the Magna Carta in the school’s records. The ‘Great Charter’ is one of the most important documents in British history and the blueprint of the principle of parliament that went on to be emulated around the world. The head of the school’s history department kept the document safe under his bed during WWII. No one knows how such a rare find came to be there, the King’s School later sold the parchment at Sotherby’s for £12,500, it went to the Australian government and is still on display at the parliament buildings in Canberra.
    2. At the Chapel
      A former chapel was deconsecrated and owing to its great acoustics was transformed into a recording studio. At one time it had been a hippy commune and attracted the attention of bands like Tangerine Dream and Genesis who both recorded there. Today it’s a stunning restaurant with a bakery and wine store.
    3. Of Mice and Bruton
      John Steinbeck, the renowned American author who wrote Of Mice and Men, Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden, which was turned into a movie starring James Dean, was fascinated with the Arthurian legend, so much so that he moved to Somerset and lived in Bruton while writing The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights and said of Bruton “…the peace I have dreamed about is here.” His writing desk is on display at Bruton Museum.
    4. The Great Flood
      The area has a history of flooding (unsurprising as much of the area was originally marshland before being settled). In 1917 the River Brue rose by an incredible 20 feet, the tide mark is still visible on one of the town’s pubs. In 1984 a dam was built to help protect the town from future floods.
    5. Green Power
      Bruton is partially powered by a hydroelectric turbine which was installed in 2003. It’s an innovative way to produce electricity without the need to burn fossil fuels and instead harness the natural power of the river, making the town incredibly environmentally friendly.
    6. Minted
      Having originally been settled by the Romans who had built their own temple there, by the 10th century the town had grown in stature and had a royal mint so was certainly a place of great status in Saxon times. In 1142 Bruton Priory was founded, this soon became one of the most important religious buildings in the region and attracted the great and the good from across the country. During the Middle Ages a number of chapels and churches were built, many of which are still there today that along with the narrow streets and many listed buildings give the town it’s picturesque charm.

Particularly picturesque, Bruton has a number of listed buildings, cobbled walkways and is one of the gems of the South West.

    You could walk the length of the skinny high street, which is only just wide enough for two tractors, and be forgiven for expecting to hear the busy sound of 18th-century looms from the gabled houses which were part of the town’s cloth-making past. Occasionally dubbed the ‘Notting Hill of the west’, Bruton gained global fame in 2014 when gallerists Hauser & Wirth opened their Somerset outpost at the renovated 17th-century Durslade Farm. One of the smallest towns in the region, Bruton has a village feel and a strong, environmentally friendly ethos, from the power supply, to the local businesses and the residents.
