I discovered the river Tone runs through Taunton, and there's a castle there as well quite near the river. And what's more, the Museum of Somerset is housed in the castle, all looking rather good.
The day started off gloriously with bright sunshine, evident in the photos. But starting at the beginning, the modernised Taunton station has retained these amazing brass lampshades I haven't seen elsewhere:
We quickly came across a fabulous second hand furniture and 'all things interesting' shop on our left
The Castle Hotel, if you click on the link, you'll see it's covered in Wisteria in spring
Castle House dates back to the 1480s, and amazingly has an upper floor which sleeps 7 that you can rent.
Fairford Church's windows are so special.
I'm aware there's lots more to explore in Taunton, the fabulous churches and canal which links
