Local History Books

We publish the Crediton History Series and promote other local history books.

All these books can be purchased from the museum. They are also available by mail order. Postage and packing costs £1.00 for books in the Crediton History Series, and £1.50 for all others. To order a book, please send a cheque payable to CAHMS, and details of your requirements to: David Nation, 3 George Hill, Crediton, Devon, EX17 2DT.

The Crediton History Series initiative was made possible in 2012 by a generous contribution from Crediton Chamber of Commerce. So far we have published 4 books and there are plans to publish a further 2 in the near future. Next will be 'Crediton Through The Ages' by Sandra Cooper, based on the very popular series of display boards in the museum covering the history of the area from prehistoric times. Books in the series are excellent value at £4 each, or £11 for any 3, or £14 for the full set of 4. 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'.
