Although it is not mentioned in the Domesday Book, there has been a settlement in Crewkerne since before the Norman Conquest. There are several interesting buildings in the old market town and the parish church, which dominates the town, dates from the 15th century and has some nice features. The town centre is a conservation area, owing to the number of Georgian town houses and old stone cottages. There are almshouses from the 17th and 18th centuries and an interesting old grammar school.

The square and small streets of the town centre reflect a prosperous past, mainly based on the two main industries of flax weaving and sail making. The sails for the Victory, Nelson’s flagship, were made here. The original trade buildings can still be seen here.

There are a number of places to stay in and around Crewkerne and the town is always worth a visit. One of the advantages is very cheap, all day parking. In addition to the busy modern shopping centre, there are plenty of individual shops, including a number selling antiques. There are also plenty of cafés and other eating places.

There are many pretty villages around Crewkerne. Hinton St George is a beautifully laid out, well kept village, with lots of character. Other attractive hamlets include Misterton and Lopen.
