Village Guidebooks and Street Directories

Despite its small size the village had a thriving tourist industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Local traders produced visitor's guides which contain a lot of information about local landmarks, businesses and hotels.
Our earliest guide to date  was published in 1903
We have also scanned in pages from local Street Directories which contain descriptions of the village and details of local shops and residents.
