LANDMARK NORTHAM – Bone Hill: Northam’s Best Kept Secret (12/04/2012)
Upon Bone Hill in Northam, North Devon, there stands a flagstaff atop a cairn of sixty stones, each of which is engraved with the name of an esteemed Naval hero from British maritime history. The memorial was erected to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Victoria, and with this concise collection of biographies of each of the men named, Jim Jackson takes us on a short trip across the high seas and looks at the life of those whose naval careers helped mould our country, whether through victory or defeat. From names well known to us like Nelson and Drake to those perhaps not so familiar, Jim Jackson’s book brings colour to the starkness of the stones.
