NOTES ON DUNSTER

At one time Dunster was a medieval port but the progressive silting up of the Avill estuary led to its abandonment, after the 17th century, in favour of Minehead.

The octagonal Yarn Market was built by George Luttrell, then living in the family home of Dunster Castle, in 1609.

On Graddist Hill, just above the village, Mrs Alexander composed the well known hymn All Things Bright and Beautiful.
