How to Buy


Our seller name on Amazon is "Turton Local History Society" in the European market places, and "Turton Local History Society UK" on (USA).  Other vendors do occasionally stock our books in new and used condition, so please take care in selecting the right seller.  We only sell new condition books.

Amazon seller name: Turton Local History Society


Although our booklets are not currently stocked in store, it is possible to order them through Waterstones online for collection at your local store.  This method avoids paying Amazon's postage costs of £2.80 per booklet, so might be an attractive option for you if you are buying a quantity of books.


Each booklet has a different price dependent on the cost of printing, which varies based on the number of pages, and the amount of colour.  The prices are listed on the Publications List page.  The product prices on Amazon USA have been increased slightly to cover the higher shipping costs (as Amazon's fixed rates don't cover the actual costs).  The booklets are new and unused, although some of the older volumes were printed over forty years ago.


If you would like to purchase TLHS booklets directly from us instead of through Amazon, please don't hesitate to contact us at

We're more than happy to make special arrangements for:
  • Paying by cheque or cash
  • Paying by PayPal
  • Special freight arrangements for multiple purchases
  • Shipping internationally
  • Customer collection at our monthly meetings in Harwood
