    6 Quirky Facts About Somerton

    1. The Birth of Somerset
      Known as ‘the Ancient and Royal Town of Wessex’, Somerton was once the capital of the Kings of Wessex. During the 13th and 14th centuries it was the first county town of Somerset and gave its name to the county. Originally a Celtic settlement, the grandson of Alfred the Great, King Eadr,ed held the Witan (early form of parliament) in Somerton.
    2. Cromwell
      In 1423 the town was ruled over by Sir Ralph Cromwell. Sir Ralph was the grandfather of Oliver Cromwell, the leader of the parliamentarian army and opposer in chief of Charles II during the English Civil War which saw man battles in the area.
    3. Gloves Are Off
      In the 1800’s Somerton’s largest industry was glove making. It then became a centre for rope and twine, supplying shipping in the region as well as the Royal Navy. The focus of the town’s industry shifted in 1841 with the birth of the Somerton Brewery.
    4. Cow & Gate
      During WWII 4 bombs fell on Somerton, aimed at the Cow & Gate factory in the town, which was the company’s biggest building at the time. The bombs destroyed 10 houses and killed 9 locals.
    5. Buttercross
      In the centre of the ancient market square, the Buttercross was the centre of dairy trading for the original market. At night the ancient monument and other buildings are lit up to delightful effect. The market dates back to the Middle Ages and is still running to this day.
    6. Made in Somerset
      A county wide movement, Made in Somerset brings together amateur and professional artisan crafts to help raise funds for local causes. Somerton hosts a number of Made in Somerset events.
