Peggy Parnell has lived in Paignton 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; rather, it’s a lucky-dip into the past – telling stories about well-known 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 accompany the lively and entertaining text. Anyone who knows and loves Paignton, as resident or visitor, will enjoy Peggy Parnell’s new book.
