History of a Montpelier house and its people

Peter Cullimore

Peter and Sue Cullimore delved into some untold stories about people who have lived at 60 Fairfield Road over the centuries. Finding out about their colourful predecessors was inspired by the house being shortlisted for the TV history programme 'A House Through Time'. This book combines the history with their step-by-step guide on how to investigate where you live.
