Local History

This is a new section of the site devoted to local history and local interest based on published but out of print books. Below, you can find the first two of what will eventually be a larger number of books relating to Ivybridge's history. I would like to thank the authors for their kind cooperation with this project.

The books are reproduced in PDF format (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader) in as close to the original format as possible. Just click on the book cover to open the PDF in a new window.
