Beyond the City Centre

In addition to their properties in Wells, the Tudway family were major landowners and invested outside of the city, including in Wookey, Dulcote (including the paper mill), Dinder and Croscombe villages. Francis H. Dickinson also gave financial aid to establish the Somerset and Bath Pauper Lunatic Asylum in Horrington in the 1840s, whose buildings have now been converted for residential use. Archdeacon William Brymer built the village school at Charlton Mackrell, which remains in use today.
