A Victorian gentleman with the means to pursue his own interests, Peter Orlando Hutchinson spent many years exploring the area around his home town of Sidmouth, keeping a diary of his activities, which ranged from geological and archaeological research to studying local buildings and performing in concerts. Illustrated with hundreds of his meticulous sketches and watercolours, this book is edited from his extensive writings and gives a fascinating view of East Devon in the late 19th century.
