Dorset Smugglers is a dramatic tale of derring-do between 1760 and 1822 when Isaac Gulliver rose to prominence as Dorset’s most daring smuggler and a wealthy property speculator. Running contraband along the coasts of Hampshire, Dorset and Devon, his daring notoriety eventually caught the attention of King George III. Aided by his right hand man, Roger Ridout, they were given free passage to take English spies to France during the Revolution and bring back French aristocrats fearful of being beheaded as traitors.
