Somerset Heritage and Libraries Service

provides care of and access to Somerset's archives, museum objects, historic buildings and sites. It runs the Somerset Heritage Centre, Somerset County Museums, Somerset Rural Life Museum, Somerset Brick and Tile Museum and the Historic Environment service. It provides research facilities, exhibitions, advice, events, outreach and learning opportunities about Somerset's rich heritage.

The Somerset Building Preservation Trust

works to save the architectural heritage of Somerset for YOU and the nation as a whole. Historic buildings that would otherwise be lost through dilapidation and neglect are restored. They are then converted into a variety of uses - a tithe barn into a community hall, some 16th century almshouses into social housing, an 18th century Congregational Chapel into an area for the local community to enjoy exhibitions …… and much more. The latest project is the restore Castle House (Grade 1 listed), which comes within the curtilage of Taunton Castle for which very generous funding of £330,000 has already been received from Viridor Credits - this comes under the landfill tax credits scheme.

Somerset Wildlife Trust

is working hard to achieve our vision of a Living Landscape for our county: a working landscape that has nature at its heart, where both people and wildlife can thrive. We aim to act as catalyst and inspiration for local communities to work together in achieving this vision for Somerset.
