Taunton, county capital of Somerset, lies on the River Tone about ten miles south of Bridgewater in the fertile vale of Taunton Deane, famous for its cider making.  A sizeable town with a population of around forty thousand people, Taunton was for many centuries at the centre of a thriving West Country woollen industry. Today Taunton has a busy livestock market, rivalling that of Exeter. Its economy is supplemented by a growing variety of light manufacturing industries.
