Welcome to Crewkerne

The earliest written record of Crewkerne is in the 899 will of Alfred the Great who left it to his youngest son Æthelweard. After the Norman conquest it was held by William the Conqueror and in the Domesday Survey of 1086 was described as a royal manor.

The town grew up in the late mediaeval period around the textile industry, its wealth preserved in the fifteenth century Church of St Bartholomew. During the 18th and 19th centuries the main industry was cloth making, including webbing, and sails for the Royal Navy.

Bincombe Beeches Local Nature Reserve is a special part of the town and there are many boutique attractions for gift shopping.

The train station takes you to Waterloo, making it a popular location.
