Latest Museum booklet published

Caroline Giddens , a Minehead Museum trustee, has just published her latest book, MINEHEAD -A LITTLE HISTORY. Caroline has lived in Minehead since the 1940s, and her own memories give this account a personal touch. Here she retells the story of Minehead, from its earliest beginnings as a small fishing and trading port, right up to the present day. Residents and visitors alike will find much to learn and much to enjoy in this lively history of our town.

Discover how Minehead grew from small beginnings to one of the most important ports in the West Country; how the townís fortunes then declined and how Minehead was revived by the new fashion for holidays by the sea and became the popular seaside resort it is today.
Price £ 5.00
