Event description

Description

'He loved the poor: he understood the sea. He was a brother and a support to sailing-men, and he had charity, humility, and justice in equal poise'

(Hilaire Belloc)


Discover how a middle class boy from Wiltshire rebelled against his upbringing to become both a poor Sidmouth fisherman and a nationally celebrated author, moving in London's bohemian literary scene. Then, in his most important role, Stephen Reynolds became an essential war worker, keeping Devon's fisheries functioning during the First World War. Dr Nigel Hyman will revive Reynolds' extraordinary, forgotten story at this evening talk at the Devon & Exeter Institution.

Tickets are free but places are limited and must be booked in advance. Complimentary glass of white wine on arrival.
