The lovely village of Martock is also well worth a visit when
you are in the area. There is a wealth of fine historic buildings
to see, uniquely constructed from the Ham Stone quarried from the nearby Ham Hill. Ham Stone has a mellow, golden
colour which gives a lovely warmth to the local buildings, some of which date
back to the medieval period. The monthly
local farmers market takes place on 9th September and has a range of
stalls selling local food including honey, cheese, artisan bread, delicious cakes
and – of course – the local Somerset Cider. For more information on Martock,
