The Book of Minehead with Alcombe
Available in Stock
The story of Minehead, a harbour town on the west Somerset coast, dates back to prehistoric times, but the arrival of the railway in 1874 began the expansion into a thriving tourist resort. This history of the town and the adjoining village of Alcombe explores their development from the three manors mentioned in Domesday Book to modern projects such as the Minehead Eye extreme sports centre.
This is one of the Halsgrove Community History series that uses archive photographs to look at the lives of small communities and how they have changed over the centuries.
