YES, you heard that right - the Somerset town of Taunton is immortalised in board game history, in the form of a Monopoly board.

Monopoly - Taunton edition is available to purchase on Amazon for £34.99, and might just be the most niche and interesting novelty Christmas present for Taunton residents this year.

It features all of the classic Monopoly rules, with the classic corner squares of jail, go to jail, free parking, and go.

What sets the Taunton edition apart is the presence of Taunton landmarks and properties available to purchase in the game.

Landmarks featured in the local edition of the classic board game include Vivary Park, Taunton Racecourse, Bridgwater and Taunton College, The Castle at Taunton Hotel, the County Gazette offices, and the Brewhouse.

A Monopoly spokesperson said: "Celebrate the best of the West Country with this special edition of the MONOPOLY game!

"The name Taunton derives from Town on the River Tone, or Tone Town and it remains a picturesque mix of Georgian architecture, cobblestones and modern additions."
