Pawlett village, Somerset
Pawlett is a small village 4 miles north of Bridgwater, in Sedgemoor district.
The village has Roman or Saxon origins. It has a Norman church and expanded in the 17th and 18th centuries with the draining of the Somerset Levels.
During World War II it was the site of an experimental research station into anti-barrage balloon warfare. At the site they did experiments to examine ways to use cable cutting devices on the wings of aircraft to sever the cable on which the barrage balloon was flown and thus allow the aircraft to continue on a mission unimpeded. Brave pilots actually flew their machines into cables to test the effectivnes of these cutters.
