The Story of Port Navas

This is the second edition of this indispensable history of Port Navas published by Peggy Shepperd in 2016 just before her 100th birthday. This edition significantly expands on its predecessor and should be required reading for anyone interested in Port Navas and the surrounding area.

The new book contains three times as many illustrations of the first edition. There are four extra chapters and two new appendices, with references and an index. It has been a community effort, with a number of key contributors. It covers geology, prehistory, medieval land holdings, and the local industries of granite, mining and oyster farming. Included are the evolution of the community from the early 19th to the 21st century, and its contributions in both world wars
