Visit Somerset has just released a new 243-page eBook “History and Heritage” about the county. It’s been three years compiling it, and is now a free resource for everyone to use, to draw people to visit Somerset, including Cheddar (see The Dawn of Man Pages 13 & 14) and promote what a beautiful county we have.
Somerset is a county that has it all. Ranked seventh in the UK for size with vast expanses of open, unspoilt spaces waiting to be explored.
Join award winning author and photographer, Ian Brodie, on a journey of discovery through the history and heritage of the county. Uncover the stunning variety of scenery: compare the bleak majesty of the Mendip Hills with the ever-changing vistas of Exmoor, the soft folds of the southern hills, the rich green flatness of the Levels, the great expanses of sand beaches with their popular resort towns and the rocky headlands at either end of the Somerset shoreline.
Discover noble ‘wool’ churches, with their imposing towers and contrast them to the dignity of Georgian Bath, the medieval quaintness of Wells or bustling market towns like Taunton, Yeovil and Frome.
Published by Visit Somerset, the official Destination Management Organisation for Somerset, this eBook showcases more than 200 sensational places to visit. It includes in-depth touring information, handy hints, maps, enhanced eBook features and over 750 stunning images.
