This book is a detailed study of the rise and fall of the various industries which have played a part in over 1300 years of the town's history. Situated at the eastern end of the Mendip Hills, the town lies on the River Frome around 15 miles south of Bath, and during the medieval period was a major commercial centre for the wollen and cloth industries.
