Situated nine miles south west of Yeovil, the town of Crewkerne is well connected by road, rail and river. It lies on the River Parrett and the A30, and is also served by the West of England Main Line Railway. Crewkerne was mentioned in the will of the Saxon King Alfred, although it was known back then as Crocern, or Cruaern. It was a royal manor at the time of the Domesday Book of 1086. The town prospered in medieval times due to the textile industry, its wealth preserved in its beautiful 15th century church, St Bartholomew's, which stands on the site of an earlier Saxon church. During Georgian times it also prospered as a coaching town. Several notable Georgian buildings still survive, including Crewkerne Town Hall. Attractions nearby include the beautiful Horn Park Gardens, which is only four miles away, and the Beaminster museum just five miles from the town. You could also visit Forde Abbey and Grange, which was founded in 1146. During the four centuries between the reign of King Stephen and the Reformation it was one of the most significant Cistercian monasteries in England. All the buildings seen today were in existence during the Middle Ages.
