Stories of local entrepreneurs such as Thomas Newcomen – who invented the atmospheric steam engine – are recounted alongside Dartmouth’s experience in wartime and the building of the Britannia Royal Na College.

“The story of Dartmouth through the eyes and minds of those who have lived and worked here over the centuries. It is not a factual, historic account offering only dates, places and names, but a trunk spilling with voices, sounds, smells, pain, ink, heartache, fear and honour. Through examples of the work by artists and writers, Joslin Fiennes’s book gives padding and texture to the dates which form Dartmouth’s past.” Anna-Katherina Caseldine, MASTHEAD, RDYC Magazine
