'BRECQHOU - A Very Private Island' by Peter J. Rivett

First ever published history of Brecqhou Island; a definitive work.

Researched material was gathered from all over the world by the author for this unique publication. From 8000 BC to 1677 AD and then on to the fascinating and colourful residents of the 20th century. Finally moving on to the purchase of  Brecqhou Island by Sir David and Sir Frederick Barclay and the building of their magnificent castle 'Fort Brecqhou'. 

Sadly Peter Rivett passed away within a week of finishing 'Brecqhou - A Very Private Island'. The last three years of his life were spent researching and writing the history of Brecqhou and this book is dedicated to his memory. It is the only book that has ever been published about the Island of Brecqhou.
