Strawberry Way in Wells is the western section of the 'bypass', and also the multiplex of the A39 and A371. It takes it's name from the former GWR line which ran from Wells through Cheddar to Yatton and so Bristol, and was famous for the special summer 'Strawberry Trains'. The former railway line is now the road, and the roundabout lies at the southern end, where the A39 heads west to Glastonbury, while the A371 curves round to the east along the East Somerset Railway trackbed to Shepton Mallet.

Railway History!

The roundabout actually lies immediately to the south of the site of the railway station for the first railway company to arrive in the city - the Somerset & Dorset Line. This caused the GWR - who eventually owned both the other lines - many problems until an agreement was finally reached to allow their trains to run through the S&D station!
