Wincanton is a small town in south Somerset, South-West England. The town lies on the A303 road, the main route between London and South-West England, and has some light industry. The town has a population of 4,643.

Wincanton is unique in the fact that it was twinned in 2002 with a town from Discworld: Ankh-Morpork. This has been formally approved by Havelock Vetinari himself in the short story A Few Words From Lord Havelock Vetinari, which has been republished in A Blink of the Screen.

Besides, Wincanton is the location of Bernard Pearson's Discworld Emporium and site of no few events for British Discworld fans.
