About This Book

Did you know that Somerset has one of the oldest engineered roads in the world? Or that a future king of England almost fell to his death in Cheddar Gorge? Or that Glastonbury Abbey was the last in the country to close at the Dissolution? There's so much to find out in this little book that's big on facts. Starting from the earliest times when prehistoric man made his home in the county we would come to later know as Somerset, to the more recent impact of the world wars and boundary changes, this history is highly accessible and addictive reading.
