Books and other gifts

We publish the Crediton History Series and promote other local history books. We have also recently added a local history themed tray to our range.

All these books can be purchased from the museum. They are also available by mail order. Postage (2nd class) and packing costs £3.00 for books in the Crediton History Series, and £3.50 for all others unless stated otherwise. To order a book, please send details of your requirements to: David Nation, 3 George Hill, Crediton, Devon, EX17 2DT, email or telephone 01363 774441. Payment can be made by bank transfer (sort code 30 80 37, account number 45108268) or cheque payable to Crediton Area History & Museum Society.

The Crediton History Series initiative was made possible in 2012 by a generous contribution from Crediton Chamber of Commerce. So far we have published 5 books and there are plans to publish others. The books start at £4 with discounts if you buy more than 2. These offers are only available when visiting the museum in person, and only apply to the books below marked 'part of the Crediton History Series'.


In addition to the books, CAHMS has commissioned the manufacture of a small batch of local history themed trays. These are for sale at £12.50 by contacting David Nation, who will arrange for them to be hand delivered locally, or posted at cost. Contact David on 01363 774441, or As of April 2022 there were only a couple left. See poster for details.
