Discworld Emporium

In 2002, Wincanton was officially twinned with Ankh-Morpork, and three years ago, developer Taylor Wimpey came up with a plan to name roads on its Kingwell Rise development at Deansley Way after places in the books.

Treacle Mine Road, Peach Pie Street and Morpork Street are among Wincanton’s streets showcasing its fantasy phenomenon.

Bernard Pearson, owner of the Discworld Emporium on the town’s high street and good friend of Sir Terry, pioneered the twinning of the town with Ankh-Morpork ten years ago.
