Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dulverton is a town and civil parish in the heart of West Somerset, England, near the border with Devon. The town has a population of 1,630. The parish includes the hamlets of Battleton and Ashwick which is located approximately 3.5 miles north west of Dulverton. To the west of the hamlet lies Ashwich House, built in the Edwardian style in 1901. Dulverton is a popular tourist destination for exploring Exmoor, and is home to the Exmoor National Park Authority headquarters. The name Dulverton was first recorded in 1084 as dieglaford-tun meaning "hidden ford"-tun. The Domesday Book records it as Dolvertune and suggests it was a royal manor before the Norman Conquest. The town lies below the iron age hillforts of Oldberry Castle and Mounsey Castle. The manor was granted to the Turbervilles by William I and in the late 12th century they gave the church and some land to Taunton Priory. The remainder of the manor passed to the Shete family.show more
