Autumn is officially here, so if you needed a good excuse to snuggle up in front of the fire then read on…

North Wales is a bit of a literary hot bed at the moment. From books written in the region during lockdown, to memoirs of a local adventurer, there is a huge choice of local books to be had. Whether you are into fiction, autobiographies or a factual tome that increases your local knowledge then read on for some wordy inspiration!


‘From Abersoch to Chequered Flag’ is the sequel to ’24 Heures Du Abersoch’. Bryn, Gareth and Helen are still chasing their shared dream of competing at the Le Mans 24-Hour motor race and bringing motor racing to their home village of Abersoch on the Llyn Peninsula.  Both ‘journeys’ have their successes and near disasters.  Bryn’s crash at Sebring in Florida, Gareth’s brush with the German police and Helen’s near collapse while racing at Spa in Belgium. Back in Abersoch, they battle to persuade the locals and County Council officials that, despite turning their village into a race track, the pub will open, keep-fit classes can still meet, cows can get milked and residents of an old peoples’ home can play bingo. Moving between Abersoch, America and Europe, ‘From Abersoch to Chequered Flag’ follows their hilarious on-and-off track exploits in pursuit of that final chequered flag.
