Product Information

Written by a former editor of the local paper, Neville Nisse this is a 64 page paperback book issued in 1983. It is the usual size of 210mm x 155mm and has 60 b/w photographs. Less than 200 years ago Bognor was a tiny fishing hamlet with a few flint cottages, thatched wooden huts and a pub or two and a long lonely stretch of sand. Then in 1785 came Sir Richard Hotham who decided it would make an ideal second Brighton or Bath. He bought 1,600 acres of land but it was not until 1929 when King George V came here to convalesce after a  serious illness that it became Bognor Regis and subsequently grew into the resort that we recognise today. Published at £4.95 it is now £2.95
