Bridgwater is town in Somerset situated near the Mendips and the Quantock Hills. It is an industrial centre and formerly a busy port on the River Parrett. A tidal bore sweeps up the river when the tide is flowing.
In the 19th century it was an important area for manufacturing tiles and bricks. The Somerset Brick and Tile Museum is dedicated to this part of its history.
The town was used by the rebel Duke of Monmouth as his headquarters before the Battle of Sedgemoor (1685). The duke was proclaimed king here as well as at Taunton.
Robert Blake (1599-1657), Cromwell's great admiral, was born in Bridgwater. His house is now a museum.
St Mary's Church, dating from the 14th century, is noted for its screenwork.
Castle Street is worth seeing for its wonderful Georgian architecture.
