DID you know that the world's largest kettle was built in Taunton?

With 43 times the capacity of a standard kettle, the largest copper kettle was built in Taunton for the hardware merchants Fisher & Son in the 19th century.

The copper kettle stood 0.9 metres (three feet) high, with a 1.8 metre (six foot) girth and a 90 litre capacity.
