About Somerton

Now a dry parish, Somerton was recorded in Domesday as "Sumerledetuna". In Anglo-Saxon times it was known as Somertun, meaning Summer Town. It's a halfway point on the Clare to Bury St Edmunds walk.

Four almshouses (see gallery) were built as the gift of the late Miss Finetta Sarah Hale in 1912
