Dorset Eye has the pleasure of publishing Andy Miller’s book in a ten week serialisation beginning very soon. Each chapter brings to life the borough of Weymouth and Portland from the 1950’s through to the 1980’s and is a must for local people who have grown up in the Naples of England or who are just historically interested in this wonderful coastal location.
We are not the only people to feel this way.
