The popular book and film called ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’ contains numerous references to places in Guernsey, especially in the parishes of St Martin’s and St Peter Port. These guided walks will show you the exact locations of all the places frequented by the characters.
Roger Berry (your guide for these walks and writer of ‘The Guernsey Guide to the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’) and six generations of his family lived within areas of St Martin’s where the book’s story is located. For Roger, these named areas are very familiar and his research into ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society’ located hundreds of actual locations and stories.
Author Annie Barrows congratulated Roger on his guide book and commented that she wished she had been able to use the guide while writing the novel. The guide book is not just an in-depth study of the book’s locations but is a valuable historic story of the 1940 to 1945 period.
