About Us

Local Heritage Books is part of Countryside Books, an independent, family-run, publisher of local interest books, spanning subjects as diverse as dog walks, pub walks, British architectural styles, Second World War aviation and lost railways.

In recent years we have been approached by a growing number of people, who are interested in publishing their own books – some of them private memoirs intended for family members only; others special-interest or niche titles that the author intended to sell on Amazon.

In each case, we were able to use our 40 years of publishing experience to guide the authors through the process of getting their book published.

As demand for this bespoke printing solution has continued to grow, we decided to set up a dedicated business. Thus, Local Heritage Books was born.

If you think you have a book in you, we’ll help you get it out, get it on the page and get it assembled as the professional-quality book you always imagined.
