Yeovil in 50 Buildings

Availability: Out of stock

Yeovil rose to prominence in the 1800s as a major centre of glove making. By the early twentieth century it was dominated by the defence industry, making it a target for German bombers during the Second World War. Between 1940 and 1942 over one hundred high explosive bombs fell on the town, damaging thousands of buildings. Despite the town's troubled past, it has managed to keep a wealth of architectural treasures from every era for us to enjoy and Yeovil in 50 Buildings is a celebration of fifty of those buildings and the stories attached to them. From the grand Aldon House to the Art Deco-inspired Odeon Cinema, we will follow Yeovil's diverse timeline through its bricks and mortar as local writer and historian, Bob Osborn, takes the reader on a tour of the town's architectural heritage.
