Lost Islands of Somerset

Some of you may recall the meeting in the Village Hall in November 2013 with Richard Brunning talking about the history of Aller Island. His book on the 'Lost Islands of Somerset', published by the Somerset Heritage Service, part of the County Council, has a small section on our Parish, among 80 well illustrated pages.

We recorded Dr Brunning's presentation and you can download the file (Aller Island.mp3 - 102.3Mb, so it will take some time on our slow local internet connection!)  here. Unfortunately, we don't have the slides to go with it.

David Martin tells me there are still a number of copies of the book available at only £5 - remarkable for a well desiged and informative book printed in colour throughout. David (contact him on 01458 251650 or at davidmartin720@btinternet.com) has offered to coordinate any orders, so if you want to get your Christmas prezzies early, give him a call.
