The Veps name for the village is Terl (from the Old Veps name Terv; the current Veps “terv” = tar.) The village has access to the Tikhvin-Lodeynoye Pole route via a motor road, and is connected to localities in the south-east of the District. T. was first mentioned as a pogost, i.e. adm., trade, and later religious center of the neighborhood, in 1137 in the Statute of Prince Svyatoslav Olgovich of Novgorod.

The stone church of Assumption of Our Lady (1861) has been restored, and two stone chapels, a refectory with its church, and accommodation and service premises have been erected.
