Chard is the highest town in Somerset, standing nearly 400 ft above sea level. There are superb views from nearby Windwhistle Hill (733 ft) and Snowdon Hill (709 ft). The town was first made a borough in 1234, and had a thriving wool industry until the 19th century, when people turned to making the net which forms the basis of machine-made lace. The 16th-century Court House, really a group of several Elizabethan houses, is Chard's most interesting sight, and the Church of St Mary has a 17th century monument to William Brewer, a local doctor, and his family. The Choughs Hotel in the High Street has an Elizabethan interior, and the grammar school, founded in 1671, is partly housed in a building dating from 1583. Two streams flow along the High Street, one going north towards the Bristol Channel, the other south to the English Channel.
