Ilminster takes its name from the River Ile and the Minster church dating from 1450.  The town grew up around the church and some of the oldest buildings are close to the churchyard including the grammar school founded in 1549.  In Victorian times the town was an important staging post for travellers with east-west and north-south routes converging there.  Market Square has a colonnaded market cross rebuilt in 1813 and is surrounded by handsome buildings.  Ilminster is an attractive and peaceful town with a good variety of shops, a theatre and enchanting street names like Strawberry Bank.
