NEWTON ABBOT IN THE NEWS
A Decade of Change 1970-1979
Brian Thomas

In a cornucopia of photographs and stories from 1970-1979 this book answers the following questions: What event brought 3,000 motorbikes to Newton Abbot? When (and why) did Newton Abbot Racecorse allow pantomime horses over the jumps? Why did a television Time Lord find Dartmoor a real pain?
    Brian Thomas, Chirf Reporter of Newton Abbot's historical weekly newspaper, the Mid-Devon Advertiser, presents a personal selection of memories of the popular Devon market town and its surrounds in the seventies - combining events absorbing, amusing, intriguing and curious with a slice of history as well. The result is a fascinating dip into modern times gone by.
