How delightful, how could you want more?
I’m speaking of course, of little Wedmore
A gem, an oasis twixt Wells and Cheddar
Then there’s Glastonbury, a special treasure
Other choices are just a short drive away
Even if ‘Wedmorians’ can be lured away
The four of us two’Wedmorians’ and we
Roamed around with adventurous hiliarity.
We’d seen the towns with the tourist image
But happier, returning home to the village.

A past visitor - new to our village kindly provided the following poem:
It’s tucked away in a valley resplendent, self contained
Once off the M5 you wonder if you will ever arrive
And in giving up a stranger couldn’t be blamed
But patience has its own reward, a village that thrives.
Being off the beaten track can be such a bonus
When you are so close to a tourist trail
Friendly folk, without vendettas or onus
With a host of attractions which can’t fail.
Glastonbury with its wealth of history and fables
Wells too has spanned the years with a rich backcloth of tales
There’s the Cheddar Gorge and its majestic granite gables
It’s weather beaten spires that are constantly assailed
There are the ‘levels’ too which gave Somerset its name
Providing no hiding place in the battle of Sedgemoor,
adding history and gallantry to the county’s fame,
the last pitched battle in an English military war.
