Very hospitable for the course that I ran. Beautiful pitch with a nice little conference facility. The staff and coaches from the club were very friendly and helpful. A convenient location for people to park and get to.

Great place to come if you're wondering what to do or where to go with your mates on just a couple of hours fun. I came here with my football team, Chesham United to see the Men's team play against Taunton town and had a great experience! Brilliant atmosphere especially if your talking about a non league club and is a local success as many attend the home games on the weekend (clearly). Had a great time even though Chesham lost. Hopefully Taunton go up and do justice to their brilliant community.

History (from Wikipedia)

Stadium[edit]

Taunton Town play their home games at Wordsworth Drive, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 2HG

When they were formed, Taunton Town played at a variety of grounds in the Taunton area, including Mountfields, French Weir, Victoria Park and Huish Old Boys. They then moved to Denman's Park, Haines Hill where they remained until 1953. During that season the club moved to Wordsworth Drive (capacity 2,500) in Taunton, where they have remained ever since. Initially they leased the ground from Taunton Borough Council, but in the 1970s the club purchased the ground from the council and installed floodlights.[2] The ground has covered stands on all four sides of the pitch.[4]
