Hello and welcom
e to the Logaston Press website. It was named by its founder Andy Johnson after Logaston, the hamlet in north Herefordshire where he lives. Logaston Press is now run by Richard and Su Wheeler of nearby Eardisley and will continue to publish books about the history, archaeology, architecture and people of this area of Britain, including Herefordshire, Shropshire and the Welsh Marches, South Wales, Worcestershire and the Black Country, and Gloucestershire. The first Logaston Press book was published in 1985 and since then we've produced more than 340 titles, over 100 of which are currently in print.
