Formerly the county town, Somerset’s name derives from ‘the people of Somerton’. The town was settled by the Romans who built a number of villas in the area. 100 years after the fall of the Roman occupation the Saxon’s moved in, pulling down many of the Roman buildings. The town grew in importance and eventually became the seat of regional power and the capital of the Kingdom of Wessex.
The weekly market dates back to the Middle Ages, however the highlight of the local calendar is the Music and Arts Festival. Somerton’s recreation ground covers 17 acres with a skate park, play area, football and rugby pitches, bowls, tennis courts, plus a sports and social club with meeting rooms and changing facilities.
Local groups include a theatre society, history society, beekeeper’s group, Somerton Literary and Poetry Society (SLAPS), quilters, gardeners, allotment association as well as sports clubs and even bellringers. Ding, dong!
