Castle Cary: Captured in Time DVD




Relax and enjoy a tour of Castle Cary, one of the most beautiful towns in the West Country.

Roger Otton, born and bred in the town, explores the history of this Somerset jewel, aided by a selection of nostalgic photographs and illustrations.

Castle Cary’s appeal remains untarnished by time, and many of its historical features still adorn the town, including the Horse Pond, the 13th Century George Hotel, All Saints Church, and of course the Round House.

Special features include visits to:

The site of the castle, demolished over 800 years ago.

The Market House, now home to a fascinating Museum.

The only surviving horse-hair fabric weaving factory in Britain, John Boyd Textiles Ltd.

There is also the story of Parson James Woodforde, the renowned 18th century diarist, who was born and raised in nearby Ansford.

If you have ever lived in Castle Cary, or were once an enchanted visitor, you will thoroughly enjoy this film.

Approx. 70 minutes.
