Bruton is a vibrant Somerset town nestling in the foothills of the Brue Valley surrounded by unspoilt countryside and is well renowned for its schools, restaurants and artistic community. The town has retained a charming character over centuries of changes from pre-Doomsday to the present and is steeped in history. On nearby Creech Hill and Lamyatt Beacon there are recorded Celtic, Roman and Dark Age sites. The church of St. Mary originated in Saxon times. The Dovecot, the long buttressed wall in the street called Plox and parts of King's school remain today as visible reminders of the Abbey. The Hauser & Wirth art gallery is situated towards the edge of the town and offers innovative exhibitions of contemporary art and education programmes. On the outskirts of the neighbouring town Wincanton Racecourse is the local home of National Hunt racing and golf courses are located at Sherborne and Wheathill. Bruton has a range of facilities including supermarkets, post office, health centre, dentist, library, schools, inns, churches, restaurants, takeaways and a railway halt.
