You could be forgiven for thinking that Yate is a new town with a limited history. A closer look will reveal a very different story: Yate originated in Saxon times and it is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.
In this documentary, you will explore the lesser known parts of the parish, and you are sure to be intrigued by the contrast between old and new.
Features include Yate’s aviation heritage, St Mary’s Church, the old Workhouse (the ‘Spike’), public houses and local schools. The town centre evolves from agricultural land to a dynamic shopping area before your very eyes!
