Adopted as the motto in , the phrase is taken from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Somerset was a part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex , and the phrase refers to the wholehearted support the people of Somerset gave to King Alfred in his struggle to save Wessex from Viking invaders. History of Somerset A map of the county in , author unknown The caves of the Mendip Hills were settled during the Palaeolithic period,  and contain extensive archaeological sites such as those at Cheddar Gorge. The Somerset Levels —specifically dry points at Glastonbury and Brent Knoll — also have a long history of settlement, and are known to have been settled by Mesolithic hunters. By AD they had established control over much of what is now England, but Somerset was still in native British hands. The British held back Saxon advance into the south-west for some time longer, but by the early eighth century King Ine of Wessex had pushed the boundaries of the West Saxon kingdom far enough west to include Somerset.
Singles Meetups in Somerset
The Social Group is the favourite social organisation for singles. The Social Group was set up in the first place because of our own experience of being single and finding it really difficult to meet people and make new friends. Before there was The Social Group, we tried everything, and to be honest, were pretty appalled at the choice… We found the usual sad singles clubs had bizarre rules where women had to agree to dance with any man of any age who asked them, and then had to allow themselves be hit on in a really creepy way.
We found other local clubs who almost forced people to hold events in their own homes, paying to cater for the horde of complete strangers who descended upon them. We found the stereotype dodgy dating agencies cost an arm and a leg, and the upshot was you found yourself sitting next to just one person of the opposite sex who was totally unsuitable, both of you feeling extremely awkward and pressured.

I have no idea what it was. While it’s not exactly clear what the object is, a number of explanations have been suggested – from the otherworldly to a smudge on the camera’s lens Speaking to MailOnline, Nigel Watson, author the Haynes UFO Investigation Manual, said: Such an apparently big object would have made a big impact on landing but nothing of this nature has been reported. The video is remarkably similar to a scene from the film War of the Worlds directed by Steven Spielberg.
In it aliens are recorded plunging to earth in dark pods during lightning storms to activate war machines pictured buried beneath the ground A number of readers of the Bridgwater Mercury, which broke the news, have commented on the unusual apparition in the skies above their town. There’ll be an Earthly, sane, explanation. But it’s way, way, too big to be a bird. Over the course of three online-based studies, researchers at the University of Kent showed strong links between the belief in conspiracy theories and certain psychological traits.
Narcissism and self-esteem levels have a large impact on a persons belief in conspiracy theories. The results showed that people who rated highly on the narcissism scale and who had low self-esteem were more likely to be conspiracy believers. However, while low self-esteem, narcissism and belief in conspiracies are strongly linked, it is not clear that one – or a combination – causes the other.

The platforms have trolleys, trunks, bikes, milk churns and the general paraphernalia one would have seen decorating the station in the old days. A single platform was provided, on the left side of trains travelling towards Watchet. A new road bridge was built in at the south end of the station before the loop was opened, but the level crossing next to the platform was left in place. The railway was operated by the Bristol and Exeter Railway which became a part of the Great Western Railway in but the West Somerset Railway remained an independent company until when it too was absorbed by the Great Western.
In both and again in the passing loop was extended to allow longer trains to pass at Williton. The main goods facilities were found to the west of the station, one siding serving the goods shed and cattle pens and another longer siding serving a loading platform. Goods traffic consisted mainly of sugar beet and timber going out and fertilizer and coal coming in. Nationalisation in saw the line become a part of the Western Region of British Railways but was closed on 4 January The Wooden former parcels office was used by the Signal and Telegraph Department but is now used as a Refreshment Room and shop.
The main station building Grade II listed built of local stone has an original Italianate chimney and inside the waiting room and booking office have been expertly restored to their original condition, including the furniture. It has been used since by West Somerset Restoration. Many restoration projects have been undertaken in this shed with possibly the most high profile being the complete restoration of West Country Class Steam Locomotive Braunton.

These are external links and will open in a new window Close share panel Image caption A restored pachycormus is the earliest known vertebrate dating back to the Jurassic period Hundreds of insect fossils dating from the Jurassic period have been found at the Museum of Somerset after they were apparently forgotten for nearly years. Geologist Charles Moore excavated them in the s but they were put in storage in and never recovered.
They were rediscovered at the museum in Taunton as part of a project to restore Moore’s entire fossil collection. It is believed Moore collected up to 1, insect specimens although researchers are still making their way through the collection to ascertain the exact number. Traces of skin This has included restoring marine fossils, bringing in scientists from Bristol University to research them and locate the missing part of Moore’s collection.
Moore excavated thousands of marine and insect fossils, mainly from Strawberry Bank, a working quarry near Ilminster, as well as from sites around the South West. Charles Moore – The researchers have also traced the location of the insect fossils which Moore wrote about in his studies. Predatory reptiles As part of the programme, Bristol City Museum preparator Lori Barber also began work last March to restore some of the marine fossils. So far she has restored 24 of of the fossils which have been chosen for further research by using a special instrument called a micro jack which works in a similar way to an air-powered drill but has a tungsten carbide needle.
