A little background on Yeovil
Yeovil was mentioned in the Domesday Book as Givele or Ivle, although paleolithic remains and a Roman Road show that the area was settled before then. A centre for the glove making industry in the 19th century, Yeovil is now heavily into aircraft and defence, notably AgustaWestland who design and make helicopters.
Jack the Treacle Eater is one of four follies in nearby Barwick Park – this building is an archway with a turret and statue on top of that. The other three are the Needle, the Fish Tower and Messiter’s Cone (or Rose Tower).
