    6 Quirky Facts About Ilminster

    1. Big Time
      At one time Ilminster was the 4th largest town in Somerset due to its thriving cloth industry. That early wealth is reflected in the impressive spires of the 15th century church that give the town its name.
    2. Carnival!
      Dust off your sequins and get ready to party! Ok, perhaps you might need to show a little more decorum, but you can certainly join in the fun with the town’s carnival. Part of Somerset’s tradition of carnivals which dates back to the Gunpowder Plot, Ilminster’s carnival happens slightly earlier in the year, enjoying the later evenings and warmth of September, it’s the biggest event on Ilminster’s calendar with parades, floats and street entertainment. And of course, cider! Well, this is Somerset.
    3. Cider Country
      This is the heart of cider country, many locals brew their own and it’s not uncommon to find a cider press in a neighbour’s shed. It is also commercially produced with a number of cider companies in the area, most of which have taprooms if you’re feeling thirsty (“Drinking? No, I’m supporting the local economy!”).
    4. Up Market
      Ilminster’s market charter was granted around the 11th century and the market is still going strong today. The town also once had a regular horse market. Horses played a major part in the town’s prosperity as it was on the main route between Exeter and London. Indeed the town was so wealthy that the crown took notice. Unlike most market towns, taxed and answerable to the church, Ilminster was a ‘Royal Peculiar’ meaning it answered directly to (and was protected by) the king.
    5. No Longer Civil
      The town’s peace was disturbed by a skirmish during the English Civil War. Parliamentarian Edward Massie was opposed by the Royalist troops of Lord Goring, both were fighting for the control of the bridges which were seen as vitally important as troops moved across the area, looking to take key strongholds, defended by wealthy land -owners. It was also a hotly contested location as the church was keen to gran the taxes that were going directly to the king. Ilminster, like many towns in the South West, was also court up in the Monmouth Rebellion. A number of local men sided with the Duke of Monmouth and after the rebellion was quashed, they were executed in the town square as an example.
    6. The Swan
      Now a shop, the Swan was once a public house, posthouse and even acted as the town’s courtroom. Well, who wouldn’t want to be held to trial in a room where the rosy-nosed judge could be plied with booze?
