Peggy Parnell has lived in Paignton virtually all her life, and has been fascinated by the town's history for as long as she can remember. Her new book is neither a volume of old photographs nor a chronological history of the town; rather, it's a 'lucky dip' into the past - telling stories about well-known local characters, filling us in on the history of local businesses, exploring the truth behind various myths and legends that have grown up over the years, reminding readers of long-gone buildings, remembering bygone pubs and clubs - and much more. A delightful selection of illustrations has been chosen to complement the lively and entertaining text. Anyone who knows and loves Paignton, as resident or visitor, will enjoy Peggy Parnell's new book.
Peggy Parnell moved to Paignton aged four and has lived in the town ever since. She founded the Paignton Preservation Society, now the Preservation & Local History Society, and has been at the heart of Paignton life for many years. She has published extensively on the history of Paignton, including articles for Devon Life and the Herald & Express and a book for Frith.
