I have finally managed to get a copy of Philip MacDougall's book 'The Story of the Hoo Peninsula', which was published in 1979. I have been trying to buy this book for quite a while, so I am pleased to have my own copy at long last! This book is said to be the 'first complete historical account ever written about the entire Hoo Peninsula', so I look forward to reading every page in the coming days and, hopefully, to learn more interesting facts about our local history.
Philip MacDougall has written many books. To find out more about these publications, visit his website.
