A bit more about the Somerset Levels and Moors....

It is home to a diverse range of wildlife including wading birds, curlews, bitterns, otters, dragonflies and an abundance of wildflowers. In winter over 80,000 water birds gather across the area and often flocks of thousands of starlings can be seen swirling in the skies at dusk before coming to roost in the reed beds. Every year between Autumn and February, Somerset starlings flock together over the Somerset Levels Moors to create huge and magnificent starling murmurations. Surely one of nature's best and most magnificent sights, the starlings form into sweeping ball like shapes in their thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands before flying down and roosting in the trees. Although the murmurations can be seen across the Somerset Levels, the best places to see them are at the National Nature Reserves of Westhay Moor, Shapwick Heath and RSPB Ham Wall all of which are under 8 miles from Low Ham

A bit more about Somerton ....

There are many delights within the town including an old market place with a lovely Buttercross which is floodlit at night. Around and in the Market Place you can find the old Town Hall, arms houses, the old courthouse which is now The Somerset Guild of Craftsmen, Courthouse Gallery. Somerton was certainly one of the main residences of the Saxon kings who built a castle here. Somerton was the stronghold of King Alfred the Great, and has had many connections with royalty throughout the ages.

A bit more about Langport ....

Langport and all the villages that surround it are linked by the network of country lanes and droves that make up the picturesque Somerset Levels. The ancient market town has several interesting and distinctive houses. It is believed that the fronts of the buildings along Bows street are built on the foundations of the original Roman causeway - which is why they lean slightly backwards, not having the same support at the rear! A medieval chapel, known as the Hanging Chapel, dates from the 14th century and is situated over an arched medieval gateway in the town walls.
