The history of Axbridge can be traced back to the reign of King Alfred when it was part of the Saxons’ defence system for Wessex against the Vikings.
Early inhabitants of the area almost certainly include the Romans, (who are known to have mined lead on the top of the Mendips) and earlier still, prehistoric man, (who lived in the local caves) whose flint tools have been found on the slopes of the local hills.
Axbridge appears in the Domesday survey of 1086 as part of the royal manor of Cheddar. It was granted a Royal Charter in 1202, when King John sold most of the royal manor of Cheddar to the Bishop of Bath and Wells.
Being a market town allowed Axbridge to prosper via the wool trade during the Medieval period. The much later decline of the cloth industry brought about the demise of Axbridge as an important trading centre.
Whilst there is much evidence of rebuilding and re-facing of buildings in Axbridge in the 18th and 19th centuries, the heart of Axbridge has changed little and it retains a number of early listed buildings in the Square and lining the main streets.
There are two ways in to this medieval town if coming by road. Or you can walk off the Mendips or the Levels and make your way to the Square that way. All roads lead to the Square, more or less; it’s the natural meeting place.
Humans also bob about on the water – if you approach Axbridge from the east, you will see signs for the reservoir where the Bristol Corinthinans Yacht club is located.
Leaving the reservoir you will find the road narrows after half a mile and the old town begins.
St. Mary’s Street, which you are now entering, has many cottages with Georgian facades which hide the older vintage of the buildings, as in much of old Axbridge. A naf painting by a local resident from the mid-18th Century, shows the street with several named inhabitants and hangs in the Museum, which is housed in King John’s Hunting Lodge in the Square.
The large house with the grand walled entrance is The Court, built in 1792. The owners throw open its grounds every year for St. John the Baptist’s Church to hold its summer fte and many visitors crowd its well-tended gardens. Gardens which include an ancient wall, which was used as a musket firing range from Napoleonic times, the ground nearby yielding many lead musket balls.

I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
