Ever wondered why our towns and villages are so named? Were they a deliberate creation by our ancestors or did they evolve naturally over time? Which Somerset village was held by the Pope at the time of Domesday? Who was Tom Mogg? Which village was named after the plant which inspired the inventor of Velcro? In these pages we examine the origins of the names with which we are otherwise so familiar. Towns, villages, districts, hills, streams, woods, farms, fields, streets and even pubs are examined and explained.
