Yeovil was the place of discovery of Palaeolithic remains and lay on a Roman road that provided the main link from Dorchester to Ilchester. The town was first mentioned in the records as Gifle in 880 AD which derives from the Celtic name of the river Yeo, which was gifl meaning forked river. It was a striving market town when it was noted in the Domesday Book as Givele and was granted a charter in 1205. The town rapidly developed during the 17th century when it became a centre of the glove making industry and during the Industrial Revolution it profited from the competition between the Great Western Railway and the London and Southern Railway, who both aimed to build the largest railway network in Britain as fast as possible.
