Somerset in the spotlight
Local author and journalist Maurice Fells has written his twelfth local history book, The Little Book of Somerset, published by The History Press.
As with his popular Little Book of Bristol, Maurice has written a compendium of places, people and trivia, about Somerset, where it’s hard to separate history and mystery.
With stories about Ashton Court Mansion and the development of Portishead from a small fishing village into a seaside resort for wealthy Bristol merchants in the seventeenth century, there are facts galore about this fascinating county.
Max Minerva’s book shop in North View are holding a book signing with Maurice Fells on Saturday December 15 at 10am.
