There are many listed buildings to explore such as two Somerset churches that date back to the fifteenth century. One has been reconstructed and the other still retains its original style and timeless beauty. You’ll also find an abundance of high-class tea rooms in the town making it a great destination for lunch or afternoon cream teas. Perhaps the most well known listed site within a short distance of the town is that of Tarr Steps. Here, the River Barle joins the River Exe and flows underneath a bridge completely made in Pre-historic times from enormous slabs of stone. The riverside walk itself is also stunning as you follow the confluence through a wealth of forest on either side. Dulverton is a wonderful place to visit full of surprises and picturesque treats.
