Turning the clock back on island history

New book recalls Lundy’s history in pictures

A PHOTOGRAPHIC look at Lundy through the ages is the subject of a new book by one of the island’s biggest fans.

Author Simon Dell, who fell in love with Lundy on his first as an eight-year-old, has amassed a fascinating collection of more than 180 pictures which trace the way the island has changed and developed during the last century.

His book, Lundy Island Through Time, features photographs of the buildings, landmarks, wildlife and people that have made the three-by-five-mile haven so popular with visitors.

Some pictures date back to the 1800s and many have never or rarely been published before.

Simon, a retired police officer from Tavistock, is a regular visitor to Lundy and leads guided walks there as a member of the Lundy Field Society.

The book is available from Amberley Publishing, priced �14.99.
