Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Local Histories

Read about the local history of favourite places across the UK

Within the Frith archive lies a vast amount of rich detail of both local and British history. Covering a 150-year period, it forms a record of social change without equal.

We have commissioned specialist local history authors to bring their knowledge and research to over 1,000 local history books. Some of the 10 million words of text assembled is now published on these history pages. They are a phenomenal resource for all interested in British history and we hope you enjoy them.

About Our Histories

Since 1998 we have published over 1,000 local and national history book titles, containing over 10 million words. A small part of this treasure trove of historical information and comment is published on this site. With more historical information added daily, we have the goal that in the near future the full the spread of Frith's publishing will be represented here.

For Family History Research

Family history researchers will find rich information within the archive: the homes in which ancestors lived, to the shops & businesses where they worked, the churches where they were christened, married, or buried. Births marriages and deaths listings may provide a family history with it's structure, but the images from within the extraordinary Frith archive bring it to life.

For School History Projects

Frith offers a chance for school history projects to not just see local history and social change in instantly comprehensible detail. No matter the descriptive power of text, photos immediately show the reality to students of any age.
