Between Sidmouth and Beer lies one of England's most attractive coastlines. This book uses pairs of historic and modern photographs to explore this coast and four settlements along it - the popular tourist town of Sidmouth and some of its hinterland, Salcombe Regis hidden in its little valley, the dispersed Branscombe which is really a series of several villages, and Beer with its little sheltered cove that was an ideal base for fishermen. The varied geology, from the red sandstone around Sidmouth to the white chalk of Beer Head, is part of England's only Natural World Heritage Site, and has given rise to a spectacular variety of cliffs, coves and beaches. The old views are still recognisable, but there has been a fascinating variety of smaller changes that make these pairs of pictures worth a close look and they will be of interest to locals and visitors alike.
