Curry Mallet

Curry Mallet

This village near Taunton in Somerset was named after the Mallets of Enmore who were Lords of the manor there. The manor house is still in use today. With the decline of the Mallet family's fortunes in Somerset the estate was absorbed by the Duchy of Cornwall, but parts of it, including the manor house have since been sold to private owners.
