Williton is is a medium-sized village situated at the junction of the A39, A358 and B3191 roads in West Somerset. It is a few miles inland from the coast and is between Minehead, Bridgwater and Taunton. There is plenty of evidence of ancient life in the area. Paleolithic, mesolithic and neolithic flints have been discovered nearby. At Battlegore, just north of the centre of Williton, stand three Bronze Age barrows. The name of Williton is Anglo-Saxon and means 'estate on the Willet'. The Willet is a brook that rises in the village. Long Street, Bridge Street, Priest Street, Robert Street and Shutgate Street have several 17th century houses but much of the centre of Williton dates from the later 19th century. Williton is a good centre for visiting the Quantocks, the Brendons and Exmoor as well as the coast at Minehead, Dunster, Blue Anchor and Watchet. There is accommodation in the village as well as camping, sailing and wind-surfing and the usual beach activities, all found nearby. There is easy access to the West Somerset Railway which is the longest private railway in the country. It is home to one of the ten stations on this line. Other places of interest include the Tropiquaria animal farm at the old radio station. Main facilities include a local supermarket, chain supermarket, post office, two banks, a petrol station and a garage
