Pedestrian Shopping - a Memory of Yeovil.

I was born on Yeovil in 1945, and my memories are of growing up in a pleasant market town. The George was a wonderful timber framed building that I remember being demolished because, apparently, it hindered traffic flow. Shortly after it was knocked down the whole area was pedestrianised ! Such a short-sighted attitude from the Planners is staggering!
