Street is a large village and civil parish in Somerset, England, with a population of 11,805 in 2011. On a dry spot in the Somerset Levels, at the end of the Polden Hills, it is 2 miles (3.2 km) south-west of Glastonbury. There is evidence of Roman occupation. Much of the history of the village is dominated by Glastonbury Abbey, and a 12th-century causeway from Glastonbury built to transport local Blue Lias stone to it.
The Society of Friends was established there by the mid-17th century. One Quaker family, the Clarks, started a business in sheepskin rugs, woollen slippers and, later, boots and shoes. This became C&J Clark which still has its headquarters in Street. In 1993, redundant factory buildings were converted to form Clarks Village, the first purpose-built factory outlet in the United Kingdom. The Shoe Museum provides information about the history of Clarks and footwear manufacture in general.

' i think they need to reduce intake as gets very crowded. Also restrict the jumping in pool to a designated area as all the kids are jumping in at all angles from all over look and it' feels chaotic. Either stop jumping in or designate area. Showers be nice if they put a roof on as it's open n cold. Apart from that look is clean n warm n great grounds.

Woohoo. Outdoor swimming pool, prices OK, to buy something, not a lot of options, just one small place. Take ages to be served, not because of the young people who works there, but take ages to get coffee, so you better don't ask for cappuccino or latte. They have only hot water machine, the rest is mixing powder with it. Should also have not benches for people to sit at when they want to eat, but then it will be less space for people to have their own space on grass. Alaa not options for hot food. Shame, hotdogs, burgers, etc. options would be nice too. And don't forget, to find a parking space is a lottle miracle too. But, great day out.

A little more expensive than I would have expected. Good value if you make a day of it

Amazing. Loads of fun for big and little kids with ample lawns for family picnics
