Axminster

Small market town on the Eastern border of Devon, England. The town is built on a hill overlooking the River Axe which heads towards the English Channel at Axmouth[?]. The market is still held every Thursday.

Axminster's main industry is carpet[?] making, for which the town is world renowned. A true Axminster carpet, made in the town, can be easily identified by the red cotton sewn into the edge of the carpet on the underside.
