The Road to Cleethorpes Pier by Margaret Royall


ISBN-13: 9781999870577

Categories: , ,



Nottinghamshire poet, Margaret Royall, tells of her childhood in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, where her world is one of family outings in a tiny Austin 7, ferry rides across the Humber, and lifelong friendships that are forged in unexpected places. Family runs like a comforting thread throughout this lovely book, and it has been illustrated with many original photographs.

This memoir is unusual in that it takes the form of a ‘Haibun’ – a traditional Japanese combination of prose and poetry, which according to the author “has allowed me to convey the beauty of growing up by the seaside in a bygone era.” 166p
