Yarn Market, High Street, Dunster, West Somerset. A view looking north along Dunster High Street towards the Yarn Market with Conygar Tower on the hillside in the distance.
During the medieval period Dunster became a centre for woollen production but by the 15th century it's significance was beginning to decline. The Yarn Market is believed to date from circa 1609 and was constructed by George Luttrell as a means to stem this decline and maintain the importance of Dunster as a market town. The folly Conygar Tower was built in 1775 for Henry Fownes Luttrell (c. 1722-1780), who became legal owner of Dunster Castle and its estate on his marriage to Margaret Luttrell (1726-1766), the great, great grandniece of George Luttrell, who built the Yarn Market
