Plowright Press 'Ordinary' Lives and community history books are produced to a high specification, including stitch binding for longevity. These books have no sell-by date.

All titles - including the back list books (which are not stitch bound) - are in print unless otherwise stated.
Trade orders are received on line via Nielson Book services.
Beware! Plowright Press books are available second-hand on the Internet and maybe advertised at inflated prices i.e. more than the cost of a new copy ordered from a bookshop or direct from us!
