History and local heritage

Local books and authors are our speciality.

We have books all about Belper as well as other Derbyshire towns such as Ripley, Alfreton, Derby, Chesterfield, Bakewell, and Matlock.

From walking & guide books to pictorial histories, dialect, poetry, railway, transport and the industrial revolution through to local business histories such as Thornton’s, Brettles, Proctor’s and more, we have the region covered.

We stock local authors such as Adrian Farmer, Berlie Dougherty, Stephen Booth, Narvel Annable and Sally Wragg and are happy to give any fledgling authors a leg-up by reading and stocking their books.

Please give us a call on (01773) 828902 or pop in if you’d like to share your favourite local author or book with us and our customers.
