From fossils to the future could be the subtitle for 'Instow - A History', a book published to mark the Millennium.
Historian and author Alison Grant researched the project and produced the first draft. From then on input from local people turned the exercise into a real community effort. The result is a glossy A4 hardback of 196 pages, packed with pictures and stories of the Parish past and present. Of the nearly 800 illustrations, 145 form 3x8 page colour sections.

Eminent figures from the past, such as 18th century engraver Ferdinand Bauer, feature along with 20th century heroes Sir Francis Chichester and David Shepherd (Shep), but this is primarily a story of ordinary folk through the ages: in peace and in war; sickness and in health; working - and playing - on the water and on the land.

Stepping To The Drummer

Published Price: £8.90 + p&p


'Stepping to the Drummer' is a book which has been long awaited by those who have followed Paul Bura's works and exploits over the years.
At last, Paul has put down the story of his extraordinary life onto paper to share with us the many rich and incredible experiences of his voyage through a life first marred by polio, then lifted by the development of his poetic and psychic gifts. Shot through with humour, passion, and a great understanding of what makes people truly human in an imperfect world, Drummer is a substantial compendium of recollections and anecdotes which entertain, sadden and lift the spirits all at once.
From down-to-earth tales of life in the entertainment business and stealing toilet chains from the Coronation Street set, to meetings with the ghosts of famous singers, conversations with disembodied entities and astounding interactions with crop circles and ancient sites, Paul's life story will resonate on many different levels in the hearts of those who join him for this remarkable journey.
