Firepool Lock is a new and exclusive development in the heart of Taunton, tailored into the bend in the river, it benefits from some of the most scenic views in the town, overlooking the cultural quarter adjacent to the waterfront. Modern and sweeping architectural lines together with functional living space design, really set these homes apart as some of the best available.

Taunton is undergoing extensive regeneration, taking it from a traditional market town with excellent facilities and transport links. The town has an array of high street stores and boutiques, as well as plenty of trendy eateries and fine dining experiences.

The regeneration process has been part of a wider scheme with multi-million pound investment into an ambitious program of infrastructure, transport, leisure and business improvements. This has included the Firepool commercial centre as a hub for business and technology, as well as the establishment of the cultural quarter along the southern bank of the River Tone, opposite Firepool Lock. Within Project Taunton there has been a strong focus on sustainability and a drive towards preserving green areas of the town and creating additional public realm.

With so much investment into the area, Taunton is becoming a perfect blend of old town charm and contemporary living. With its roots firmly grounded in a longstanding history dating back to Anglo Saxon times, the continuation of this area as a place for settlement has lead to an abundance of historical features.

Taunton Castle and the St Mary Magdalene Church elude to the romantic history of the town, and while strolling along the canals you get a sense of the history surrounding Taunton and the importance of it to Somerset as a commercial and cultural focus. Shopping districts such as Coal Orchard retain the history and is home to a number of boutiques.
