Axminster, an ancient market town dating back to Saxon times, situated on the River Axe in Devon, acquired a reputation for the making of carpets as early as the eighteenth century and, to this day, the name of Axminster is associated with carpet making, which is carried on today in a new factory which is a popular visitor attraction. There are a few old coaching inns in the town and some fine examples of Georgian and Victorian architecture. The map below shows the features of the town of Axminster, its streets and houses as they were in the mid twentieth century.
