on the edge of some beautiful rolling countryside located 8 miles south of Shepton
Mallet between Bath and Yeovil.
Apart from the time around the Glastonbury Music Festival when 150,000 people
descend on the area – the nearest train station to the venue at Pilton about 7 miles
away is at Castle Cary – the town remains relatively quiet and unspoilt.
There are the delights and bustle of Bath just 24 miles away, while fashionable Frome
and burgeoning Bruton are close by as well, but Castle Cary retains an unspoilt charm.
The golden stone of the local buildings combine with the countryside South Somerset
setting to exude a warm glow that is enhanced by a friendly village atmosphere.
You will not find much evidence of the ‘castle’ element of the Castle Cary name because the 12th century castle has long since disappeared. By the end of the 17th century Castle Cary had developed an industry of cloth-making and later horsehair weaving. This was utilised mainly for upholstery, manufactured at John Boyd Textiles factory which is still operating today using some of the original techniques. Over the last 50 years the town has expanded to the north, but the centre has changed little and runs along the foot of the steep, grassy Lodge Hill where the castle used to stand. Historic buildings like the Market House (now home to the museum), the Round House (a small 18th century prison) and the old George Inn are still prominent together with many fine nineteenth-century shop-fronts.
