REVIEWS OF PURBECK REVEALED:

“Quite simply, Purbeck Revealed is the best book on this precious peninsula…that has yet been written” George Willey, writing in The Swanage and Wareham Advertiser on the first edition. On publication of the 2008 edition he added “Best then, even better now.”… “It is an amazingly well-researched, compelling and comprehensive study of the island’s history, topography, its character and its characters. It is brilliantly well-informed and abounds with anecdotes and humour as well as solid fact and observation.”

 “A delightful blend of reminiscence, historical information and natural wisdom” Dorset Life

 

Purbeck Revealed displays Ilay’s ability to relay a realistic and enthralling mix of social, historic and geographical information in an enjoyable and readable format. I have no doubt that Purbeck Revealed will be hailed not only in the present but in the far distant future as a remarkable work of great value. Very few modern authors have managed to combine factual historical and geographical information with personal remembrances and social commentary with such ease – resulting in a completely readable, informative and enjoyable book.” Nico Campbell-Allen Purbeck Gazette.
