Ottery St Mary is probably best known to the world as the birth place of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who made reference to the town and the River Otter in many of his works. But there is more to the old Devonshire town than that. It is set in some of the best dairy land in the South-West, has a distinguished industrial past, and arguably the finest parish church in the country. Many of the unique traditions of this unique town still survive, such as the Pixie Day revels, and the flaming tar barrels of the 5th November. This book will bring back to life such aspects of the town that may have been forgotten, and which cannot fail to captivate.
