Nunney

"NUNNEY, a parish in the hundred of Frome, county Somerset, 3 miles S.W. of Frome, its railway station and post town, and 120 W. of London. The village, which is large, is situated on a small stream in confluence with the river Frome. The parish includes the hamlet of Trudox Hill, at which place are the remains of a Roman camp. There are traces of a nunnery, which is supposed to have given name to the village, also the ivy-covered ruins of De-la-Meres' Castle, which was garrisoned by the Royalists during the civil war, but was taken and burnt by the Roundheads in 1645. On the banks of the Frome are numerous lime kilns, and an edge-tool manufactory. A large proportion of the land is in pasture. The soil is of various qualities, but in general rich, with a subsoil of clay and limestone." From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson © 2003
