Williton village, Somerset
The West Somerset village of Williton lies at the junction of the A39, A358 and B3191 roads. It is 2 miles south of the coastal town of Watchet and lies at the centre of the triangle formed between Minehead, Bridgwater and Taunton. The name of Williton is Anglo-Saxon and means 'estate on the (River) Willet', but there are no records relating to this period prior to a Charter of 904AD. The Willet is a brook that rises at Willet, flows north through the hamlet of Stream, and close to the former manor house of Williton, then it joins the Doniford Brook north-east of Williton. The parish includes the seaside village of Doniford and the hamlet of St Decumans. Williton is home to one of the ten stations of the West Somerset Railway. Doniford Halt was built on the same line in 1987 to serve the nearby Haven Holiday centre.
