Pen Mill School - a Memory of Yeovil.
We lived in St Michaels Avenue, just a short distance up the hill from St Mikes - and I attended Pen Mill Primary, which was a little way down the hill from this church. Our morning assemblies were held in the church hall, which had a magnificent clock tower. It chimed the hours and quarters - very handy if you were in the garden and wanted to know the time (no-one wore a watch while tending the garden). At Pen Mill I saw television for the first time - on the occasion of the Queen's Coronation in May 1953. There were very few cars around at that time - we were able to play marbles in the gutter(!) and I learnt to ride a bike in Glenville Road, next door to the church grounds.
