Thousands of readers who eagerly await their copies of the West Somerset Free Press turn first to Notes by the Way. Instigated by Clement Kille in 1881, at first it was personal, political and critical; but over the last eighty years under the authorship of first Herbert Kille, succeeded by Jack Hurley and then Glyn Court, it has become a forum for local history, tradition and reminiscences. Hilary Binding took over the column fifteen years ago and this book contains a selection of her most memorable and intriguing pieces. They range over a wide area from Old Cleeve, Watchet and Stogumber in the east to Culbone, Challacombe and Lynton in the west. Memories recorded include those of the late Fred Partridge of Luccombe, of Sydney Whitehead who visited Porlock first in the 1920s and Will Widden of Ilfracombe, a regular correspondent for many years. The book investigates Minehead in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, recounts the tale of Farmer Nicholas Snow
