Yeovil HistoryWelcome to the A-to-Z of Yeovil's History website.
This is a work in progress, unfunded and updated almost daily, to record much of the history of Yeovil, Somerset, England (before about 1970). It uses internet technology to embed links within each page to enable the reader to follow an infinite number of threads to suit their interest.

Viewed in 120 countries with over 1,916,900 page views, this website currently contains more than 2,190 pages and over 10,220 images.

The 'Themes' in the various navigation bars gather pages into themes while the 'A-to-Z' links lead to listing pages starting with each respective letter, plus some special features that are only accessed from this page - I'm sure you'll soon get the idea.

Please note that, due to the huge number of images on this website (over 10,000), the site is fast approaching the limits of its storage capacity. To avoid cripplingly increased hosting expenses, I will be compressing the images during the next few weeks in order to reduce the overall size of the site. The compressed images will lose some sharpness, but will still be satisfactory for the purpose of display on this website. If you wish to contribute to the ongoing expenses of running this website, please click here.

         In memory of 20-year old Yeovil lad Albert Ricketts who was killed in action 100 years ago today.
