    6 Quirky Facts About Wincanton

    1. Twins
      Wincanton hit the headlines when it became the first town in the UK to be twinned with a fictional town. Ankh-Morpork is the main town of the hugely popular Discworld series (a world that rests on the back of four grey elephants), created by Sir Terry Pratchett. The town even went as far as naming streets after their literary counterparts such as Peach Pie Lane and Treacle Mine Road. Pratchett commented “It’s a lovely idea, to do something for the sheer joy and incongruity of doing it”. Regional powers weren’t as impressed and refused to allow the town to change its road signs stating “twin towns actually have to exist” (booo!). Thankfully the people of Wincanton ignored them and today the town signs proudly give the name of their (imaginary) twin town (yaaay!.
    2. Fair’s Fair
      Wincanton was once a very prosperous town that as well as a market, was granted permission to hold two fairs each year that attracted the great and the good from across the region. Unlike regular markets where villagers could buy basic provisions, a fair was far grander and would involve jugglers, music, feasting, drinking, cattle/sheep/horse trading and more.
    3. This Means War!
      Wincanton might be peaceful now but you never know when a rival king might put in an appearance. In the 17th century much of the region declared for the ill-fated Duke of Monmouth and his short-lived Monmouth Rebellion. Things didn’t go well for the Duke or those that supported him and 6 men were hung, drawn and quartered in the town square.
    4. The Future’s Orange
      3 years later William of Orange landed in Devon and marched towards London. By now the King had decided to leave troops stationed across the region to quash any further uprisings. A troop of Williams men came face to face with 100 Irish soldiers, stationed in Wincanton and loyal to the King. Shots were exchanged and during the brief skirmish, 15 men died, including the commanding officers from both dies.
    5. Coach & Horses
      The introduction of trains also meant the death of the stagecoach and the route between the South West and London. Up to 17 coaches a day would pass through the town. The loss of the passing (stopping) traffic heavily affected the local industries that relied on the continuous arrival of travellers to survive.
    6. How Very Dare You!
      Founder of the Methodist Movement, John Wesley, once visited Wincanton and called it, ‘one of the dullest places in all of the county’. But if it were to come down to a pot/kettle, finger pointing match, Wesley wasn’t exactly known for his party lifestyle.
