 About the Book 

Somerset is a county of contrasts. Flat moors that hide evidence of the lives of centuries past lie beside abrupt hills cleft by nature into crannies and caves. Somerset has seen both the first flickering light of Christianity and the darkness of warMoreSomerset is a county of contrasts. Flat moors that hide evidence of the lives of centuries past lie beside abrupt hills cleft by nature into crannies and caves. Somerset has seen both the first flickering light of Christianity and the darkness of war when men fought their own neighbours. World-famous prosperous industries exit in the midst of rich dairy pastures stretching to the horizon. By exploring the stories that lie behind such landmarks, this text reveals how Cheddar is more the just caves, Wells is more than a cathedral, and the moors are more that flat fields. Other, perhaps lesser known areas and events that have helped to shape Somersets rich history are also covered.
