COLERIDGE NOTEBOOK: The Coleridge Memorial project has announced it may use a slight surplus from the poetry stones project to purchase a set of Coleridge Notebooks to present to the town’s library.

A spokesman said: “These occasionally crop up on the internet, and it would solve the problem of access to the Notebooks which are not held by any Devon Library. The books would remain on reference only and exclusively in Ottery, so they don’t drift off into inter-library loans.”
