"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
and entertain with its light-hearted approach, we explore some of the
more unusual aspects of Paignton's colourful past — from puddings to
pirates! Packed with stories about the people and places of this famous
Devonshire seaside resort of Paignton, 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!
