Books on Wiltshire, Somerset & Devon

I published Beyond Where Wiltshire Meets Somerset, a second book of local walks, in 2015. Where Wiltshire Meets Somerset, originally published in 1982, continues to sell steadily. I completed all the routes once more in December 2018 and January 2019 and produced an updated edition in February 2019.

Other than my two books of walks, I am no longer actively adding titles to our West Country list. Both our books on Bradford on Avon: Bradford on Avon: Past & Present (which began life in 1988) and Bradford Voices (1998) have been through various editions, are both now out of print, as are a few other smaller past projects.

In 2017 we reprinted, for the fourth time, The Geology of Somerset, by Peter Hardy, and maintained the price of £9.95 when it was originally published back in 1998 – extraordinary!



I began work on this book several years ago but, enjoying a quiet patch in early 2016, at last managed to complete it. It is basically a record of my publishing activities since I wrote and published my first effort back in 1979. Yes, it is autobiographical but I hope it says something interesting and perhaps enlightening about the experience of a one-man-band publisher of mostly local interest books in a small provincial town.
