Paul Swailes

Paul was educated at Barnstaple Grammar School before going to the University of Leeds to study Geography and Economic History. He taught in Leeds for five years before returning to North Devon to take up a teaching post at Ilfracombe College in 1986 and where he is now Assistant Principal.

Paul has two grown up sons who are both due to go to university next year.

Although not formally trained in art, it clearly forms a major part in his life and this, together with travel, photography and collecting Victorian British stamps, are his main hobbies.

Paul was kind [or was it foolish!] enough to offer his services to the Newsletter in August 1990, and has continued to do so ever since, more often than not illustrating the Local Walk and poems, and always at short notice!
