Author of new Burnham-On-Sea history book holds signing session

Burnham-On-Sea author Bob Thomas held a special book signing session on Saturday (October 29th) when his new publication exploring the town's history went on sale.

As reported by Burnham-On-Sea.com here, Bob has compiled over 275 photographs of events, places and people for the new title, called The Book Of Burnham-On-Sea - A Record Of The Ebb and Flow Of A Somerset Seaside Town.

There was a steady flow of readers keen to snap up signed copies of the publication during Saturday's session.

"There has been a lot of interest from people - and I have already received lots of positive feedback," he told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

The large-format book features 160 pages and includes historic photographs, maps, drawings and illustrations.

In it, Bob recounts many incidents from Burnham's past, reaching back to Arthurian legend, including a major naval battle, smuggling, piracy, shipwreck and murder. "It's been wonderful to put together and it makes a great read," he added.

Published by Halsgrove, the book is now on sale at £24.99 and can be bought online here via Amazon.co.uk or from GW Hurleys book store in The High Street.
