Tucked away in a corner of East Devon is the beautiful, unspoilt Axe Valley. At the mouth of the River Axe is the friendly coastal resort of Seaton. This idyllic town is depicted here in an attractive volume of period sepia photographs and modern colour images. Seaton's rich history, from its development into a Victorian seaside holiday resort to the inception of the Seaton tramway in 1970, has been faithfully captured and compared with the Seaton of today. The reader is also given an insight into the history of neighbouring Axmouth, one of the most beautiful villages on the Devon coast, and the equally charming Colyford. A valuable portrait of these communities is thereby painted, depicting with affection the scenes and activities that have defined these places over the years and that continue to appeal to locals and visitors alike.
