EVER wondered what the people of 
Somerset did before the days of 
amusement arcades and lines of 
restaurants across the seafront?

If so a new book, Customs of 
Somerset by Tony Foxworthy will be able to enlighten you as it describes the 
traditional customs and pastimes of 
communities including Burnham and East Brent.

The book is packed full of nostalgia which takes the reader through each 
season of the year, explaining what 
traditions were most popular and the traditions which have managed to survive.

As the eighth book in the series, it includes pictures of Burnham’s carnivals and harvest homes in East Brent.

As explained by the author in the 
introduction, this book aims to disprove the notion these customs have died in Somerset since the Industrial Revolution.

Customs In Somerset, by Tony 
Foxworthy, is published by Country Books.
