Welcome to our page of information, attractions
and places of interest around Axminster. Axminster,
is a pleasant, unspoilt Devon market town with much charm, and
is, of course, linked in history to the carpet that bears its
name, the business starting in 1755. The 100% pure new wool pile
in Axminster is made with the best of British Wool including
fleece from Axminster's very own flock of Drysdale sheep. The
town has a town square and the Minster church of St Nicholas.
Axminster features some fine Victorian buildings and winding
streets well worth exploring. There is a Thursday cattle market.
