The Highlights of the Photographic Archive
At the Community Heritage Access Centre we have a large photographic archive of Yeovil and the South Somerset area featuring over 4800 photographs from the 19
century. The archive is a very useful resource for local history and is a popular source of enquiry.
The Photographic Collection principally focuses on the streets and events of Yeovil but images of South Somerset villages like Martock, Queen Camel and Stoke Sub Hamdon are also available to view. Indeed, many of our 60's images have appeared in our "Yeovil In Living Memory" Calendar, and more shall occur in later issues.
The images showcased here, as well as many more, have been wonderfully used in the book 'Around Yeovil' by Robin Ansell and Marion Barnes, as part of 'The Archive Photograph Series'. More of our images, in particular world war one images, can be seen in our
