Axbridge is a picturesque former market town on the southern fringe of the Mendip Hills. This small town has a medieval market square, narrow streets and ancient timber framed buildings. Although the river Axe is over a mile away from the town now, it is believed that once it was much closer, hence the name of the town.
At two points there was a mint operating in the town, and it had a royal residence. The decline of the textile industry hit the town hard, and its railway link was removed in the 1960s under Dr Beeching.
The town has remained small since then, but is a great place to visit the Mendip Hills. There are still enough farms around Axbridge to make the cattle population large enough for us to visit regularly for:Photo from Featured Project near Axbridge
