    St Mary Magdalene

    by Masada Written May 27, 2008

    The Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene, set strikingly in the centre of Taunton, has been the town church since 1308 - a heritage of 700 years. Over the next two centuries it was to become the largest parish church in Somerset.

    Of particular note is the tower described by Simon Jenkins as "the finest in England. It makes its peace with the sky not just with a coronet but with the entire crown jewels cast in red-brown stone."

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Somerset County Cricket Club has been in the First Class County Championship since 1891, although it has never won - its best performance came in 2001 as runners-up. The Cricket museum contains a wealth of cricketana from Somerset's past - with items such as Joel Garner's Cricket Boots, old cricket cigarette cards, a cricket library and a pictorial cricket history. If you are visiting the ground for a match it is an ideal way to spend the lunch and/or tea interval, being open on match days.
