Somerset is a rural, maritime shire in southwest England. "The present-day northern border of Somerset (adjoining the counties of Bristol and Gloucestershire) runs along the southern bank of the Avon from the Bristol Channel, then follows around the southern edge of the Bristol built-up area, before continuing upstream along the Avon, and then diverges from the river to include Bath and its historic hinterland to the north of the Avon, before meeting Wiltshire at the Three Shire Stones on the Fosse Way at Batheaston". ---Wikipedia contributors, "Somerset," Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Somerset&oldid=761045678 (accessed January 29, 2017).
