the text in this section is based on an article in Wikipedia

The ceremonial and non-metropolitan county of Somerset in South West England borders Bristol and Gloucestershire to the north, Wiltshire to the east, Dorset to the south-east, and Devon to the south-west. It is partly bounded to the north and west by the Bristol Channel and the estuary of the River Severn. Its traditional northern border was the River Avon, but the administrative boundary crept southwards with the creation and expansion of the City of Bristol. Bristol and Bath and the neighbouring rural districts were transferred to a new County of Avon in 1974. The new county was abolished in 1996 and succeeded by unitary authorities, two of which (North Somerset and Bath and North East Somerset) have returned to Somerset on a ceremonial basis. Somerset's county town is Taunton, located in the south of the county.

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 of land including the Somerset Levels. There is evidence of human occupation from Palaeolithic times, and of subsequent settlement in the Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods. The county played a significant part in the consolidation of power and rise of King Alfred the Great (end of the 9th century), and later in the English Civil War (mid 1600s) and the Monmouth Rebellion.

Agriculture is a major business in the county. Sheep were farmed for wool as well as meat, and cattle dairying and cheese-making (most notably Cheddar), are traditional and contemporary endeavours, as is the more unusual cultivation of willow for basket weaving and as a green fuel. Apple orchards were once plentiful, and Somerset is still known for the production of strong cider. In the 19th century, coal mining was a substantial industry in Somerset, particularly in the area that is now Bath and North East Somerset, south of Bristol.

Unemployment is lower than the national average; the largest employment sectors are now retail, manufacturing, tourism, and health and social care. Population growth in the county is higher than the national average. (expanded in Wikipedia in the section "Demography")

Cities and towns

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Somerton took over from Ilchester as the county town in the late thirteenth century, but it declined in importance and the status of county town transferred to Taunton about 1366. The county has two cities, Bath and Wells, and (including the county town of Taunton, which has no town council but instead is the chief settlement of the county's only borough). The largest urban areas in terms of population are Bath, Weston-super-Mare, Taunton, Yeovil and Bridgwater. Many settlements developed because of their strategic importance in relation to geographical features, such as river crossings or valleys in ranges of hills. Examples include Axbridge on the River Axe, Castle Cary on the River Cary, North Petherton on the River Parrett, and Ilminster, where there was a crossing point on the River Isle. Midsomer Norton lies on the River Somer; while the Wellow Brook and the Fosseway Roman road run through Radstock. Chard is the most southerly town in Somerset, and at an altitude of it is also the highest.

Population

Throughout the county the population is often given for small civil parishes. The figure stated comes from the latest figures available from the Office for National Statistics and these are the populations from the 2001 census. A census was again taken in the spring of 2011, but these later statistics have not yet been released.
