The local area guide to living in Street

Street is a large village set in the beautiful, peaceful county of Somerset in England. It lays in the shadow of the Polden Hills, only a stone’s throw from Glastonbury and Bristol.

Street has been an important place for quarrying since the 12th century, and was noted in the Domesday Book. Quarrying was a significant contributor to the economy of Street into the 19th century, until a Quaker family started a small shoemaking company called C&J Clark – now Clarks, it is one of the largest shoemaking companies in the world!

Just north of Street is the pretty River Brue, and to the south are rolling hills and beautiful countryside. Within the town is the spectacular 14th century Anglican Parish Church of The Holy Trinity – a grade 1 listed building.

If you decide to live here, you’ll soon realise that Street is well located and perfectly picturesque, with good transport links. It has excellent shops, restaurants and a good selection of properties to rent or buy.
