About the area
Axbridge is a small town in Somerset, situated in the Sedgemoor district on the River Axe, near the southern edge of the Mendip Hills. Its population is just over 2,000 people.
It's an historic town dating back to the Romans and King Alfred and was one of his burgs (fortified townsteads) against the Danes. Half-timbered buildings lean towards each other across a narrow street leading to the medieval square and King John’s Hunting Lodge. Its prosperous past is reflected in the quality of the buildings in Axbridge, particularly the fine 13th century St John’s Church which is the oldest to survive, dating back to 1245.
It's well placed for the other towns of the region and in easy reach of Bristol. It benefits from a bypass, which keeps all through traffic well away.
There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including Sidcot, Kings of Wessex, Strode College, Wells Blue, Wells Cathedral and Millfield.
