Reg Glover's book, 'Over the Years' features photographs of the town and the pensioner's memories of growing up there.

Reg, aged 87, said: "I used to talk a lot about growing up in Axbridge and kept going on about it so one day my family just told me to go away and write a book about it.

"Since the book was published last year I have had someone from Australia place an order for six copies and 400 have been sold so far."
