Somerset is a ceremonial and non-metropolitan county in South West England. Somerset is a rural county of rolling hills such as the Blackdown Hills, Mendip Hills, Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park, and large flat expanses. The county played a significant part in the rise to power of King Alfred the Great, and later in the English Civil War and the Monmouth Rebellion.
The farming of sheep and cattle are major businesses in the county including for wool and the county’s famous cheeses (most notably Cheddar) as is the more unusual cultivation of willow for basket weaving. Apple orchards were once plentiful, and Somerset is still known for the production of strong cider – hiccup!
