The Sedgemoor Inn, Westonzoyland
The pub is named after the Battle of Sedgemoor, which was fought near Westonzoyland on 6 July 1685. It was the final battle of the Monmouth Rebellion, between the forces of James Scott, 1st Duke of Monmouth and the crown he was trying to take. The royalist forces prevailed and about 500 troops were captured. Monmouth escaped from the battlefield but was later captured and taken to London for trial and execution.
