Elegant Georgian houses and coaching inns record
Wincanton's importance as a staging post on the main London to
Plymouth road. In the 1600s the town provided stabling for nearly
300 horses. Nowadays visitors come to enjoy the horse-racing on the
hill-top course above the town.
Home to the unique Cunning
Artificer's Discworld Emporium and Wincanton museum.
Indoor swimming at the sports
centre. Short drive to Moldrams Ground Nature
Reserve. Drive through nearby Bayford and Stoke Trister
to Cucklington for panoramic views.
Uniquely, Wincanton is twinned with a fictional
town, Ankh Morpork in Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels.
