Over the years Pennine Heritage has written and sold many publications.

Pennine Magazine

Pennine Magazine, the iconic 48 page bi-monthly magazine, famous for its strong black and white covers promoted the aims, philosophy and activities of the Trust in addition to well researched heritage features.

Entirely produced by volunteers, it ran to 66 issues before succumbing to adverse economic factors and an ill-fated commercial partnership. It achieved a dedicated following in its time and is as good a read today as when first published. A limited number of back copies are available for most issues from 1980 to the early 1990’s.

Pennine Heritage Network

Pennine Heritage Network of 16 interpretive booklets, on 4 themes – Man and Landscape; Textiles; Transport; and Social Movements – were also published in the early 1980’s. Funded by the Carnegie Trust and the then Countryside Commission, under the overall editorship of Professor Bernard Jennings, these were also entirely researched and written by volunteers.

Many of these booklets are currently out of print but plans are in hand for early publication of updated editions.

Milltown Memories

Milltown Memories, a more recent quarterly magazine, produced by Issy Shannon and Frank Woolrych under the Pennine Heritage banner highlighted aspects of the area’s heritage and was well illustrated by historic sepia prints from the Alice Longstaff collection.

Back numbers of many issues are available and may be obtained from the Trust.

Other publications include;

  • Pennine Walks around Hebden Bridge
  • Heptonstall History Trail
  • Hebden Bridge Trail
  • Trail of the Luddites
