Bridgwater is a market town and civil parish in Somerset, England. Bridgwater is located on the major communication routes through South West England. According to the last census, the town had a population of 33,698.
Bridgwater is situated, on the edge of the Somerset Levels, in level and well-wooded country. To the north is the Mendip range and on the west the Quantock hills. The town lies along both sides of the River Parrett, 16 km from its mouth, and has been a major port and trading centre while maintaining a large industrial base.
Historically, the town had a politically radical tendency, being involved in several events of note on the national stage, and was defended by its own castle. The battlefield of the Battle of Sedgemoor, where the Monmouth Rebellion was finally crushed in 1685 is nearby. Among several places of worship the chief is the Church of St Mary. A house in Blake Street, largely restored, was the birthplace of Admiral Blake in 1598, and is now the Blake Museum. The town has its own arts centre and plays host to the annual Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival.
