LOCATION: Creech Hill lies to the North West of Bruton and is renowned as one of the beauty spots of the area. It is a popular destination for walkers and has an abundance of footpaths and bridleways. It is also a site of historic significance. On top of the hill, one of the highest points in the area, a Romano-Celtic Temple and Fort were sited in Roman times. One can easily understand the location as the elevated position of the Temple, and indeed Primrose House, command an enviable position over the surrounding valleys. Bruton itself is a small historic town in the foothills of the Brue Valley, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside a few miles north of Castle Cary and in easy reach of Wincanton, Yeovil, Sherborne, Glastonbury, Frome, Wells and Bath. The town has a railway station which is the Bristol-Weymouth line, with a further regular service to Bath Spa. There are also good Inter-City services at nearby Castle Cary (Paddington). Bruton dates back to Roman times and today is a charming small town with various shops and amenities, including the newly opened 'Hauser & Wirth' Art and Exhibition Gallery, the ever popular dining experience 'At The Chapel' and of course an excellent choice of schools including Bruton School for Girls, King's School, Sexey's School and Sunny Hill Prep to name but a few.
