South Road is a sought after address, which as its name implies, can be found on the southern side of Taunton. It is primarily a residential area which has largely developed since Victorian times so that there is now an interesting variety of good quality houses dating from that era. Large, well established trees which line much of the road, give the area an air of maturity. The town centre is about one mile away and provides comprehensive facilities with recreational, scholastic and shopping facilities, as well as a main line railway and an M5 Motorway interchange.
