Local Historical sites and places of interest
The West Country has a wealth of historic sites all within easy reach of Ashwick Parish: these range from the Roman City of Bath to the Medieval Cathedral City of Wells, and from prehisthoric sites such as Silbury Hill, Amesbury and Stonehenge to natural wonders such as the Somerset Levels, Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Caves.
The links* here provide some background information and historical, rather than contempory, photographs of the places or subjects. *Ongoing project so please check back for updates.
