Even in the driest of months, Taunton has a lot of rainfall, but tends to be a lot milder compared to other places in the UK. In early 2014, a widespread flooding covering an area of 65 square kilometres, happened on the nearby Somerset Levels and Moors, within the Parrett and Tone river catchments. Hence, precautions against flooding, rising damp, penetrating damp and woodworm are essential on local properties.
Originally called Tone Tun (based on the River Tone), Taunton started out as a Saxon village which then grew into a small town with a population of just a couple of hundred people. Now the town has a population of more than 60,000 people and is in the County Town for Somerset. The town’s streets are filled with Georgian architecture along with Victorian designs in the Vivary Park. There is a mixture of old and modern housing, and the associated problems of inadequate damp proofing course that comes with it.
