This small Somerset town owes its name to its proximity with a Roman ‘street’, the Fosse Way. Its most famous citizens were a family of shoemakers, the Clarks, who started a global footwear company by selling slipper-linings from sheepskin off-cuts in the early 19th century. The firm’s original buildings later became the first purpose-built factory outlet in the UK.
