For the tenth year running, South Somerset District Council staff have delved through the extensive South Somerset Heritage Collection to bring you the South Somerset Heritage calendar 2023.
The calendar features a series of photographs and associated objects celebrating South Somerset’s inventions, mementos, and local history.
This year’s theme commemorates the Queen’s Coronation 70 years ago. This is reflected with objects and photographs ranging from the Coronation Hotel to a teacup inscribed “present from Yeovil”.
2023 also commemorates 90 years since two Westland aircraft from Yeovil allowed the first photographic flight over Mount Everest. The calendar features an image of a propeller from a lighting generator on one of the aircraft.
Joseph Lewis, Heritage Co-ordinator, says, “There are some exciting new additions to our collection which have made their debut in this year’s calendar. Make sure to look out for the Rose Queen in Yeovil’s Carnival and Yeovil Girl’s School to get a glimpse at historic Yeovil.
