Now That's What I Call Yeovil

Availability: In stock

The sixties, seventies and eighties were decades of great change. This period saw two major town centre redevelopment projects that dramatically affected the town's character. People's shopping habits were altered as supermarkers took over from traditional stores and corner shops. Leisure habits were changing too, and Yeovil saw an ever-increasing range of leisure facilities. Transport also evolved, with a move away from the railway, creating a great strain on the roads, and the major new road schemes of Kingston, Recklesford and Queensway only compound the changing face of this Somerset marker town.

These changes in people's habits and lifestyles were keenly felt in Yeovil and local author and historian Bob Osborn has captured them all in this fascinating portrayal of the town and its people over the course of these most nostalgic decades.
