Pocket Guide: Yeovil

Yeovil has been an important district of Somerset since the time of the Roman invasion, mainly back then because of its supremely strategic position along the ancient Fosse Way, now traced by the A37 motorway. This route between Lichester and Dorchester was vital for the legions, and today is just as convenient for visitors too. When you book in to a B&B or Somerset hotel or guesthouse Yeovil you'll find it remarkably easy to get around and see all the sights, by car or public transport.

The Gloves are Off in Yeovil

The word Yeovil simply means town on the river and in that sense Yeovil doesn't differ much from many other Somerset towns. But on closer inspection they all have their own distinctive and unique points of interest, and Yeovil is no different. Yeovil's identity really began to consolidate under King John, who took a personal interest in this part of Somerset and helped promote it as a local farming centre for the region, although it had been important for farming since Saxon times.

In more recent times Yeovil became especially associated with the making of gloves, whereas neighbouring districts went in more for upland sheep and wool production. The local football club, Yeovil FC, is still known fondly as The Glovers.

Historic Yeovil

It's rather fitting that, given the strategic importance of the Yeovil area in Roman and medieval times, the main export today is military equipment. In fact the biggest local employer is AgustaWestland, the helicopter manufacturing and design giant.

Yeovil is actually rather bigger than it seems at first, and the historic centre of the town itself is a labyrinth of winding alleys that seem to go on for miles. The 14th century St. John the Baptist church stands at the centre of the medieval old town, and around it many fine buildings still stand, legacies of successive stages in Yeovil's development over the generation. On a visit to Yeovil, stay at one of the many Somerset hotels or guesthouses in the area for easy access to the wider region and to the attractions of Yeovil town.
