Somerset is a county of contrasts. Flat moors that hide evidence of the lives of centuries past lie beside abrupt hills cleft by nature into crannies and caves. Somerset has seen both the first flickering light of Christianity and the darkness of war when men fought their own neighbours. World-famous prosperous industries exit in the midst of rich dairy pastures stretching to the horizon.
