"The Torbay Book" by Chips Barber was first published in 1984 and
featured three main towns that make up the area of Torbay; Torquay,
Paignton, and Brixham. Many things have changed in the area since then,
including each town demanding its own identity! Therefore Chips has
taken his original book and reworked, reshaped, revised and
re-illustrated each section into an entirely independent volume.
In this attractive and informative book, which will
hopefully amuse and entertain with its light-hearted approach, are
spectacular disasters, old industries, unusual sea monsters, bizarre
smuggling tales, historic events and other stories about the people and
places of this famous Devonshire port of Brixham. Whether you are new
to the area, have lived here forever, or are visiting for a short time
only, this little book should have enormous appeal!
