Alum Bay and the Needles is the fascinating story of this natural landmark on the Isle of Wight, which is now one of the UK's most famous tourist attractions. The book covers the various activities that have taken place here over the years, including its time as a Victorian resort, Marconi and the birth of radio, its use as a rocket site and its decline into obscurity between 1909 and 1971.

It also tells of the area's redevelopment in more recent years as the Needles Pleasure Park, one of the Isle of Wight's top tourist attractions.
