About The Area
Nestling in a fold of the beautiful Mendip Hills escarpment in eastern Somerset, Shepton Mallet is an attractive combination of an ancient market town and a modern industrial community. Strategically located within easy reach of major tourist attractions such as Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury Abbey and Cheddar Gorge and caves, Shepton Mallet itself has many historic sites and associations for the visitor to explore.
For 3,000 years Shepton Mallet has been a hive of industry. The livelihoods of at least 120 generations have been spent in this small market town nestling in a fold of the Mendip Hills, along the narrow valley of the stream known as the River Sheppey.
Recently, exciting new archaeological discoveries have revealed even more of the town's early history. In 1995 Bronze Age homesteads and pottery were found during excavations near Cannards Grave, to the south of the town. Maesbury Ring, the Iron Age town, 950 feet up on the Mendips is the earliest trace.
The Romans left their mark on Shepton Mallet. The Fosse Way, their "motorway" from Exeter to the north of the country - passes through the east of the town, and its route can be traced up the narrow tracks of Brecon Hill, where ancient tumuli dot the landscape. Remains of Roman potters' kilns were found where the Anglo-Bavarian Brewery was built in he 1860s. Then in 1988, the discovery of a lead coffin led to the excavations in 1990 which revealed signs of a whole Roman industrial town beside the Fosse Way. It is believed that there is much more to unearth.
