This Somerset town is packed with 'old world' charm and its Medieval beginnings are still evident in some of its oldest buildings. An important wool-producer in the Middle Ages, the town has always been at the centre of things, indeed it was a river port in earlier times. This was reflected in its early royal charters allowing it to hold markets, fairs and become a royal borough. It even had its own mint, with coins showing the town's symbol: the Lamb and Flag. There is far less through traffic nowadays, but the layout of the town has changed little over the centuries, a medieval town expanding on a fortified Saxon burgh. Axbridge is well served for local facilities include post office, general stores, primary (www.axbridgefirstschool.co.uk) and middle (www.fairlands.somerset.sch.uk) schools (Fairlands being in Cheddar) and a number of restaurants.
