Crest



This is the town crest as seen on the gates to Vivary Park.

The out of focus bum to the right of the photo belongs to my wonderful girlfriend Nelly!

Nice bum Nelly! HI if you're reading this! =)

Some bums deserve to be out of focus (gravity can be very mean ya know!)...but somehow I don't think hers qualifies yet!

Lucky guy!

;-)

Have a nice trip? Great shots down below too!

That crest with an angel and a crown and the words defendamus (we defend?) - is this crest displayed in other parts of Taunton or only on this gate?

Right, got to apologise, it's not a crest is it! It's not a coat of arms either, a shield maybe?
Anyway, I have not seen it anywhere else yet but I will keep my eyes peeled - I will try and find a good shot of the full coat of arms too.
West Ham! pfah! ;)

Hi Mountain boy, The face with the wings are also on a stone panel on a building in the town I cannot remember which one.
My name is Taunton and I came down to the town a few years ago. I took part in a Town Criers competition in Bridgwater and while I was down there I did a proclamation asking for any families with the name Taunton to contact me.
Mountainboy would it be possible for you to email me? I have a request.... peter.taunton@sky.com
