  • Hello
    Does anyone in the society know a little recent history? The designer and test pilot at westland aircraft/ W.E.W. Petter and Harald penrose respectively, had cottages in the area. petters being a modern chalet style house and penroses being a traditional thatched cottage. does anyone know the whereabouts of these?

  • i am trying to find out more about the life of Frances Connelly, the first women to vote in Yeovil (albeit accidently). Does anyone in the Local History society have any details about her?
