The story behind Knights Templar:

 

The order of the Knights Templar was founded in 1119-20 in the Holy Land to protect pilgrims, crusaders and resident Christians.

 

In Somerset, Templar holdings were widely dispered. The county held a middle position in the list of Templar property. They ran their scattered holdings from preceptories, and their income was immune from taxes. The Knights themselves were usually of aristocratic background; their estates were populated by tenants and servents of the Order, who saw themselves as Templars, but were otherwise indistinguishable from the general population.

 

Examples of Templar holdings in Somerset include the Temple Meads area of Bristol - one of their earliest grants in England, which included a hostelry, church and farm. Textile manufacture and dyeing was a feature of this site.

 

Templcoombe, granted in 1185 and the ninth richest Templar holding in England, possessing 400 acres, became the main preceptory in the southwest.

 

On the Mendips, Temple Down Farm was an important sheep-rearing centre, with 1000 sheep and 60 other beasts. Fleeces were taken to the preceptory at Temple Newbury, near Coleford, where three water-powered fulling mills produced white broadcloth. Theoldest recorded corn mill in England was here too.

 

Templar estates were also established at Temple Cloud and Cameley, where in the church of St James is preserved a wooden carved head believed to be of Templar origin and possessing a possible relationship to the Templecoombe painting and Turin shroud.
