New edition revised by Nigel Hyman

The most comprehensive history of Sidmouth in print.

This history of Sidmouth was the brain-child of Gerald Gibbens, a past Curator of Sidmouth Museum. It covers the history of the town, starting with the geology, and includes chapters on prehistoric and Roman eras, Saxon, Viking and Norman times, The Middle Ages, the Tudor Epoch, The 17th and 18th Centuries, The Regency Period, The Victorian Age and the 20th Century. A new chapter chronicles the early days of the 21st Century and the book now includes over 70 illustrations in colour.

Published 1987. Third Edition revised 2015.
