NJB Hoofcare - Area of Operation for Street, Somerset

Street is a thriving village close to Glastonbury, on the slopes of the Polden Hills, where the Romans mined stone. Blue Lias is a rock peculiar to this area and was highly prized in those days. Many houses in the old town are built of this stone. The town was famous for many years for human foot care with the Clarks shoe factory being founded and operated there between 1825 and 1993. James Clark was a Quaker and philanthropist who did much good in the town, ploughing back profits from his shoe factory int workers' welfare and housing.
