Connections far

and wide

The A30 used to be the main road link from the south east to Cornwall, and still runs through the centre of our fine old town. Considerable congestion can build up at times, but frustration is eased as travellers slow down and they are able to appreciate our floral displays.

 

Away from the centre of town are many amenities and residential areas which supporters have transformed florally and artistically. Meanwhile, schools and organizations participate enthusiastically in special projects such as planting with the Youth Club re-using pots

 

Cup for Best Nature Reserve

Bincombe Beeches

Maintained by the Town Council and volunteers, this natural and peaceful countryside haven on a hill enjoys spectacular views, mainly unchanged for two centuries. With its majestic line of beech trees crowning the town side of the hill, it is home to a surprisingly rich assortment of flora, fungi and fauna.

Severalls War Memorial Garden

The War Memorial Garden, run by a group of volunteers, is a wonderful place to spend a reflective moment. It is approached by an impressive avenue of Horse Chesnut Trees, planted after the First World War, with one tree for each man from Crewkerne who lost their life.

Crewkerne Railway Station

A regular It's Your Neighborhood Entrant, but taking a break in 2019 is Crewkerne Railway Station. On the outskirts of town, the station was built in 1860 and is on the mainline London Waterloo to Exeter route. The Friends of Crewkerne Station keep it looking welcoming and this year are planning a special celebration for the 160th anniversary of the opening of the section between Yeovil and Exeter which includes Crewkerne.
