Introduction

We are in a partnership with Somerset West and Taunton Council, Cheddon Fitzpaine and West Monkton Parish Councils to create The Somerset Wood, to commemorate the county’s fallen in World War One.

The 2018 centenary of the ending of the First World War was a special time of remembrance and reflection. It seemed only right that we, the Somerset generations of today, should do something special to mark the anniversary and recognise the sacrifice of our predecessors.

Creating a wood achieves this in a uniquely physical and enduring way that future generations of Somerset people can relate to and enjoy.
