We publish Good Books

We specialise in industrial and transport history primarily, but not exclusively, in the West Country of England. Our award winning books give an authentic view of their subjects, combining accurate scholarship with readability. We have always emphasised quality in all aspects, from the original research to the production of the finished book. We at Twelveheads Press are all experienced authors and researchers and bring this knowledge to bear on the books we accept.

Each of our books, except the Heritage range, has its own page within this site and to order on-line all you need to do is select the UK or overseas price and click the ‘Buy Now’ button on each page. Books are sent post free within the UK. For Heritage books you will have to list the titles you want. Orders are despatched as soon as possible but there may be modest delays at times.
