Axminster is a market town and civil parish in east Devon. The town is built on a hill overlooking the River Axe and is adjacent to the A35 road. At the 2001 census, it had a population of 5,626. The history of the town is very much linked to the carpet industry due to the fact that Axminster gave its name to a particular type of carpet. An Axminster-type power loom is capable of weaving high quality carpets with infinite colours and patterns. While Axminster carpet is still made in the town of Axminster today, this 'type' of carpet is now manufactured all over the world. The industry was started by Thomas Whitty at Court House near the church in 1755. The completion of the early hand tufted carpets was marked by a peal of bells from the parish church as it took a great amount of time and labour to complete them.
