Street

Welcome to Street

Located within the Somerset Levels, Street is Somerset’s largest village.

Sitting at the end of the Polden Hills, with views of Glastonbury Tor and the Mendip Hills. Street is perfectly situated to explore the surrounding countryside, whilst enjoying all of the sites and facilities that the village has to offer.
 
Street is the birthplace of Clarks shoes, whose story began almost 200 years ago, when brothers, Cyrus and James Clark, started making slippers from sheepskin offcuts.  Clarks grew into an international company, renowned for quality and innovation.  Although the factory has long gone, Street is still home to Clarks HQ, and many of the surrounding buildings and terraces built for the workers, such as Wilfrid Road, themselves attract visitors, for their architectural qualities.
 
Street also has a number of churches, the oldest being the Anglican Parish Church of The Holy Trinity, a Grade I listed building which dates from the 14th century.
 
From manufacturing to retail, on the site of the old Clarks factory stands one of Somerset’s premier tourist attractions, Clarks Village outlet shopping centre, the first purpose-built factory outlet in the UK.
 
Along the High Street you will find many independent shops and cafés, as well as a selection of well known brands.
 
As you walk east along the High Street you will find Greenbank Swimming Pool, a Grade II listed pool that was bequeathed by Alice Clark to Street in 1937.   
 
Merriman Park, is just a short stroll from western end of the High Street.  The park offers something for everyone, with an open grass area, a newly refurbished play area for 0 – 10 years old’s, play equipment for older children and an outdoor table tennis table.  It also contains a war memorial, that was designed by William Douglas Caröe,    
 
Street is also renowned for its educational facilities.  Millfield School has been represented at every Olympic Games since 1956, and at the 2012 Olympics in London Millfield was the most represented British school.
   
Street is surrounded by a rich variety of towns, each with their own distinct character, such the neighboring town of Glastonbury, renowned for its spirituality, or the historic cathedral city of Wells.
