Castle Cary Town in Somerset

Photograph of Castle Cary

Location

Castle Cary is a market town located in southeast Somerset. It lies about 5 miles (8 km) north west of Wincanton and 8 miles (12.9 km) south of Shepton Mallet. Situated on the River Cary, a tributary of the Parrett, the town is overlooked by its Norman motte and bailey castle. The town grew to prominence in mediaeval times due to its weaving industry. Castle Cary currently has a population of just over 2,000 and is an ideal base from which to explore Cheddar Gorge, Bath and Wells, Glastonbury, Sherborne and Shaftesbury. Stonehenge and Bristol are about an hour by car, whilst Avebury in Wiltshire is just a 90 minutes journey.
