Salmons & Sons

An absorbing history and exploration

Fascinating learning about the Salmons family and their huge contribution to the industry.  Lived in the town but learned so much I never knew. Even if looking for the Aston Martin connection you’ll be just as impressed.
An absorbing history and exploration, detailed with some great images – recommended.

Salmons & Sons and Aston Martin

A very good insight

As someone who has a deep interest in Classic cars I found the depth of information and research amazing. Over the years I have known about the Aston Martin brand but never realised it came about in such a roundabout way. This book has been a very good insight into the part Newport Pagnell has played in automotive history and is a ‘must’ to read

Salmons & Sons

Eminently and required reading for both fine car enthusiasts and anyone connected with the town.
