Devizes' insporation for Horatio Hornblower

We are about to publish a book about Samuel Powell's House (no 8 Long Street). One of the people who lived there was Admiral Joseph Needham Tayler, whose life during the Napoleanic Wars was once of the inspirations for C S Forester's Horatio Hornblower. The book is published on 1 December, but you can order your copy now at a special pre-publication price of just £10.
