Taunton Castle Stitch

Uploaded by: WurzelDave

Taunton, Somerset, United Kingdom

Caption: Two photos stitched together to show part of the castle, the other part of the castle had scoffolding on it & you don't want to see that! The great hall in Taunton castle was the site where the Bloody Assizes where held after the failed Monmouth Rebellion (the last battle on English soil) in 1685. Hundreds of people who had followed the Duke of Monmouth into battle near Westonzoyland (known as The Battle of Sedgemoor) were tried by Judge Jeffries & either hanged flogged or sold into slavery.

"Waste not ye court's time by pleading ye innocence" Judge Jeffries. He held his court at the "George and Pilgrims" inn in Glastonbury too. Fell out of favour at the Restoration, and was caught by the mob in London and died of his wounds. Thanks for the photographs of the castle, Dave. Lots of memories.

Because people from my home town of Bridgwater were sold into slavery at that time, Bridgwater became the first town to turn against slavery.

About WurzelDave


I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300, SX150 & SX40 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer! I also have a variety of film cameras (35mm, stereo, 110, 120 format) dating from 1940 upwards. Photos from these cameras will appear here from time to time
