About the area 
Bruton is a small ancient town (population around 3,000) in South Somerset situated in the Brue Valley surrounded by beautiful and accessible countryside. Predating Roman times it has evolved gently through the ages with many interesting and historical buildings defining its character. In the time of Canute there was a Royal Mint in Bruton and it's recorded in the Doomsday book. Later it developed as a market town and the wool and silk trade prospered. Today its main industries are agriculture and education with five schools in Bruton: King's School, founded in 1519, Bruton School for Girls, Sexey's School, a Primary School and the Meadow School for Steiner Education. There are other excellent independent schools in the area including Hazlegrove at Sparkford, Millfield at Street, Sherborne Schools, Wells Cathedral School, Downside, Port Regis and St Mary's, Shaftesbury.
