Truth Conquers

Truth Conquers

A couple of weeks ago I found myself in Wellington, Somerset after having to attend a meeting there. I had a spare hour or so afterwards so took a stroll down main street with my camera, At one end, opposite the church, I came across a pair of semis with this terracotta plaque centrally placed on the first story.

I have managed to retain enough Latin to translate Truth Conquers but have no idea why this profound statement ended up being affixed to a building in Wellington. Perhaps its the motto of the local aristocracy?
