More Somerset Tales
- Jack William Sweet
15th May 2017
Somerset is a beautiful county – 'The Land of Summer' – and it is also one of the oldest English counties. However, beneath the beauty lies a Somerset that is sometimes shocking, often surprising.
Once again Jack Sweet tells some of these stories, including the unsolved brutal murder of young Betty Trump at Buckland St Mary, a terrific storm that struck the Somerset coast in 1903, a prison break, violent robbery, tragedies in the air, at sea and in the river, to the strange tale of a young lady chased by an angry stoat, a weird creature rising from the River Yeo near Yeovil, and on the lighter side, the proceedings of the Brighter Cary Club.
