About the location

PARRETT WORKS

Martock 1 mile; South Petherton 1.5 miles.

The Somerset hamlet of Parrett Works can be found in a rural setting beside the River Parrett, located between the lively communities of South Petherton and Martock, on the edge of the Somerset Levels and within easy reach of the Mendip, Quantock and Blackdown Hills. The name of the hamlet originates from the small factory, formerly known as Carey’s Mill, where snuff was made, and later a foundry which produced traction engines, and all kinds of agricultural machinery, used now as a fascinating reclamation centre. The nearby attractive large village of Martock, provides a good selection of local facilities and boasts many lovely hamstone buildings, constructed from the local honey coloured stone, and also offers pleasant walks along the Parrett Trail, which stretches 48 miles towards the West Somerset coast. To the west, the pretty village of South Petherton oozes quiet, timeless charm, with interesting local shops and inns as well as a vibrant arts centre. There are numerous National Trust properties and places of interest to visit nearby, including Lambrook Gardens, Montacute House, and Forde Abbey. Within a short drive can be found the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton, and Haynes International Motor Museum, or explore mystical Glastonbury, and marvel at Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves. Alternatively, take a day trip to majestic Bath, or Dorset's Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. A great holiday base from which to explore this lovely part of the country.
