MY DEVONSHIRE YEAR
by Margaret I Pogson
An evocative account of Margaret Pogson's timeless observations of the natural history along the coastline and countryside of Devon's Jurassic Coast
Join Margaret on her gentle journey through the year and enjoy her enchanting portrait of the landscape she saw around her. It is a calm and peaceful world that evokes the natural beauty of Devon.
Her personal journal of the shifting seasons is a beautiful record of another time, another place. . .
Margaret I. Pogson:
Although Margaret's grandparents were from Devon, she was born in Derbyshire in 1934.
The family then moved near London where her father ran a busy signal box.
Her mother used to paint and that inspired Margaret who, when only 14, won a gardening magazine competition for flower painting. Later she received further art education at evening classes and local art societies and was inspired by visiting professional artists.
The family moved to the Lincolnshire Fens where Margaret was to meet Kenneth, her future husband.
He was a railway fireman who used to pass her father's signal box. On the express routes he fired famous steam engines such as the Flying Scotsman.
They married, had two sons and later moved to Seaton in East Devon in 1970 where her husband, who having left the railway in 1961, ran the local Ambulance Station.
The journal was started in 1979 and completed in 1985.
Margaret gave the book to Brian, her son, on her 80th birthday and she is delighted that it has now been published.
CARADON & LOOE
(NEW PAPERBACK EDITION)
Some of the richest copper mines in the United Kingdom, a rare Cornish canal and a railway uniquely engineered to convey the minerals by gravity combine to make a fascinating story.
The wealth brought by copper. as well as by tin and granite, extracted from this corner of Bodmin Moor, built the town of Liskeard and the harbour of Looe that we know today. it gave us a unique transport system, built to service the bonanza of Caradon copper, a mining discovery that germinated, blossomed, withered and died all within fifty years, but left us the picturesque railway line to Looe.
It is as story of ingenuity and capability, of independence and interdependence, of hope and despair.
It could only have happened in Victorian Britain.

DARTMOUTH - AN ENCHANTED PLACE
by Joslin Fiennes
NEW LOWER PRICE
WAS £35.00 NOW £25.00
Explores the extraordinary history of this beautiful English town,
accompanied by over 200 illustrations
Published in association with Richard Webb
Painting and sculpture, poetry and adventure, the present and the past, the local and the cosmopolitan, all belong to this exploration of the Dartmouth area. Extraordinary natural beauty is captured in art going back to the 17th century; a multi-layered and often glorious past is discovered behind modesty today. At the end of the road, the area is a springboard to a highway by sea, and modern yachtsmen sail off in the wake of kings and pilgrims, crusaders and explorers, emigrants and invasion forces.Much of the cultural heritage uncovered in this book is surprising and new. John Masefield, Robert Graves, Flora Thompson and Nevil Shute as well as Agatha Christie were inspired by the Dart; with Queen Victoria came the Prince of Wales and his friends who spawned little-known local inventors of marine engines, motor-cars and gliders. The book displays Lucien Pissarro's pastoral vision and publishes for the first time delicate sketches by Turner; it explores how the same stretch of the Dart inspired the pre-Christian vision behind Bridget McCrum's minimalist modern sculpture and Graves' writing on the same mythology.Dartmouth: An Enchanted Place is all about looking again at this quiet coastal area - through the eyes of the artists who dress it up and the voices of the historians and writers who write it down. It is about the people who made a unique place and those who have preserved it.
THE DANGER ZONE
AVOID BEING A CONVICT SENT TO AUSTRALIA
by Meredith Costain
Top tips from experts:
If you have to be a criminal, watch out for night patrols in the city.
On board a prison ship, check your food carefully for weevils and maggots.
Don't cry out during a flogging - prisoners try to give authorities the silent treatment.
If you manage to escape, learn to live off the land like an aborigine.
