The book launch: Branscombe, A Tale of Three Pubs
Following a very successful exhibition on the Branscombe pubs in 2018 Barbara Farquharson and John Torrance have written a book called ‘Branscombe, A Tale of Three Pubs’. Using archival material, old newspaper accounts and photographs, and a wealth of oral history, it tells the story from the earliest cider houses to the very different fortunes of the three pubs today.
Appropriately, the bar will be open for the launch, and the book will be sold at a special launch price.
Talk and launch are on Monday February 25th in Branscombe Village Hall, at 7.30. Entrance is free, donations are welcome.
