On our way to Watchet on the Somerset Coast we stopped to have a walk around the village of Dunster.
It is a very pretty, photogenic place with lots of interesting ancient buildings and a splendid castle which overlooks the village. The castle was mentioned in the Domesday Book and was home to the Luttrell Family for 600 years.
The 16th century tithe barn - now a community hall - from the front.....
...and from the back.
The old Dovecote
St George's Church taken from the lovely public garden which can be accessed from the walled garden at the back of the tithe barn.
The garden was so peaceful.
The timber framed Yarn Market on High street was built in 1590 by George Luttrell to shelter the wool and cloth traders from the weather.
High Street is full of lovely little shops most of which were just opening when we arrived. We decided that we must go back and look at the castle and the watermill and take the walk to Dunster beach another time or we'd never get to our main goal of the day - the coastal town of Watchet
