The Old Municipal Buildings, Taunton

This is a wonderful atmospheric Grade ll* Listed building. The Old Municipal Buildings are in the historic centre of Taunton on the outer limits of the grounds of Taunton Castle. The road outside - Corporation Street - follows the line of the Castle Moat. Behind, in Castle Green Car Park, was the Outer Bailey of the Castle. These buildings were originally built in 1522 as a boys' grammar school, although there are records of the existence of a school here as long ago as the reign of Edward l, about 1300.
