Crest Nicholson was delighted to welcome former England Batsman Matthew Maynard to its award-winning Firepool Lock development in Taunton.

Now Director of Cricket at Somerset County Cricket Club, Matthew enjoyed a tour of the development’s stunning waterside villa show home before signing replica cricket bats for house-hunting fans.

Firepool Lock is an integral part of the multi-million pound Project Taunton regeneration scheme and in 2014 won a prestigious Sunday Times British Homes award for its inspiring collection of apartments, coach houses, family homes and waterfront villas. 

Situated alongside the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal, the development is less than five minutes’ from the county cricket ground, offering residents the best of tranquil countryside living without having to sacrifice urban convenience and style.
