A piece of Sidmouth History has been discovered in the Hayman's Butchers archives. Along with lots of old images and newspaper cuttings of the historical business an 1870 Sidmouth Directory was found.
Dated February 3rd 1870 it is number 41 of the sixth series and cost one penny! The front of the directory has a beautiful drawing of Sidmouth from Salcombe Hill and inside you can find the tide times along with the residents and visitors to the town. An incredible piece of history to stumble across.
You can view through the entire directory here and hopefully will inspire more people to send in any they have so we can put them up on the site to share.
Share this page and who knows, there may be more directories out there hidden away...
