    6 Quirky Facts About Chard

    1. First Flight
      Chard might well have been the birthplace of powered flight. Yes, before the Wright Brothers took to the air a local factory engineer, John Stringfellow, built an unmanned steam-powered aircraft which flew “30 yards of straight and level powered flight” using wings with rotary blades, inside a large factory space. His first attempt had managed just 10 yards before crashing.
    2. Camelot
      The town was recorded in the Domesday Book as ‘Cerdre’ which means ‘the house of Cerdic’. Cerdic was the founder of the Kingdom of Wessex and some believe him to have been the real King Arthur. Which must make Chard his Camelot (?!?).
    3. In the Money
      During WWII a bomb-proof bunker was built to store duplicate bank records from the Bank of Westminster to protect them should the originals be destroyed in London. The same bunker was also used to store an emergency bank note supply for the Bank of England.
    4. Haunted Hotel
      The Choughs Hotel is reportedly one of the most haunted hotels in Britain. Maintenance work to the 16th century building once revealed a secret room that had been sealed off. It’s now part of the bar but has been the site of ‘strange occurrences’. Spooky sightings at the hotel include a knight in armour, a crying child and Hanging Judge Jeffreys (a notorious figure who sentenced 300 men to death in the aftermath of the Monmouth Rebellion). One of the stones that forms the fireplace is believed to be a gravestone, which for years, whenever it was photographed (in the days before digital cameras), the image always came out ‘blurry’.
    5. Hanging Tree
      Not only did Jeffreys stay in Chard, he actually hung 12 of the rebels in the town, at a spot known as Hang-cross Tree. The tree was removed in 1861 to make room for the railway, something that attracted protests from the locals.
    6. Rebellion
      It is also believed by historians that during the Monmouth Rebellion, James Steward “The Pretender” declared himself King while in Chard.

    About Chard

    About Chard

    The most southerly point of Somerset, Chard is actually closer to the Devon coast than it is Somerset cities like Bath, that just means it offers the best of both worlds and is certainly packed with the charms of the south west.

    Surrounded by glorious countryside, Chard is nestled between the Blackwood Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, East Devon AONB and Dorset AONB. And if that’s not enough initials and organisations, it’s also not far from the Jurassic Coast (a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Site of Scientific Interest… Phew!). Plus there are charming villages and country pubs to be explored at your leisure.

    The town itself has a fascinating history, from hanging judges and hunted hotels, to the Bank of England’s secret stash and a claim to being the real Camelot. You’ll find great local shops, quirky producers, delightful eateries and a friendly community feel.

    Leisure

    As well as being close to no less than three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, dog walkers, joggers and cyclists have the Chard Reservoir which covers 91.4 acres as well as a nearby nature reserve. The town has a cricket club, theatre society, plus groups dedicated to photography, cycling, literature and all manner of interests for those that like to join in.

    There’s a weekly street market (Saturdays), a good selection of local shops and a supermarket.
