Somerset Towns and Villages
30 Fore Street, TA21 8AQ, Wellington
A friendly town set in the wide valley between the Brendon and Blackdown Hills, Wellington gave its name to the famous 'Iron Duke', victor of the Battle of Waterloo. The 175ft column built on the scarp edge of the Blackdowns was erected in his honour: at night it is an illuminated landmark for miles around.
The town's growth and prosperity date back to the 18th century when the Fox Family built their integrated woollen mill. Visit the Wellington museum to find out more about this historic town and unravel the Fox Family legacy.
With a range of specialist shops, Wellington is ideal for browsing during the day whilst the 'Wellesley', the town's unique 1930s cinema offers entertainment in the evening. Wellington Park was restored in recent years thanks to a Heritage Lottery Grant.
Wellington has also recently become a 'Food Town' and hosts various events and initiatives to celebrate the best in local food and drink.
