There is plenty to interest day-trippers
WHETHER you are a day visitor or a life-long resident there is plenty of interest in Crewkerne if you know where to look, writes Hannah Light. Here are four suggestions:
Crewkerne and District Museum. Opened in 2000, the museum is in one of the town's oldest buildings, which was restored with grants from local councils and the Heritage Lottery Fund. Exhibits and collections of archaeological finds explain the development of the town over the centuries, and give an in-depth examination of Crewkerne's place in the textile industry.
Church of St Bartholomew. The original Saxon church was replaced after the Norman Conquest with a much larger building, and was then rebuilt in the late fifteenth century. Designated by English Heritage as a grade one listed building, this structure has not changed a great deal to this day and features Tudor-style chapels. Visitors will notice a pair of mythical Green Man carvings within the church.
The Old Grammar School. Founded in 1499 by John de Combe, Crewkerne Grammar School is one of the oldest buildings in the town and is built on the site of a priest's home. John de Combe was a Canon of Exeter cathedral and vicar of Crewkerne from 1472 to 1496.
