Somerset Heritage Office, research times.

I recently had the pleasure of spending a day in research at the Somerset Heritage Office in Taunton. Traces of the Flatner are everywhere in the history of the Somerset Levels and Moors and a number of books that I found there were fascinating. Flooding is obviously a complex issue in Somerset, however, the more I know about it the more I feel passionate about this project. It is interesting to note the special relationship of Somerset with water by revisiting history, the culture, the traditions, the landscape – all are based on this particular connection. I have found a number of impressive images of the area around Langport and how this community is well knowledgeable about this.

I would like to thank the staff at the Somerset Heritage Office for being such a helpful and passionate team, for helping out with ideas facilitating ways to find information within their archives.
