Exmoor Naturalist No 20
Exmoor Naturalist No 1

Every Spring, commencing with No. 1 in 1975, the Society’s magazine Exmoor Naturalisthas been issued free to members with a small number left over for sale to others. It has increased in content over the years. Number one was duplicated and consisted of 16 pages. Number thirty, issued in 2004 ran to 108 pages plus a full colour insert. It is written and illustrated by members of the Society. It has been edited by Noel Allen since its inception with Caroline Giddens as co-editor since issue no. 12 in 1986. The original size was a folded foolscap sheet but a change to the slightly smaller A5 size was made with number 26 issued in Spring 2000. A full set is hard to come by; some, but not all, back numbers are available from the Secretary at £2 per copy, plus postage 50p for one copy, and an extra 25p for each additional copy.

In keeping with the fundamental Aim of the Society to ‘Further the study and recording of the botanical and wildlife of Exmoor’ many other publications have been produced by members over the years. Many ENHS publications on Exmoor wildlife were the first of their kind: because Exmoor falls within two counties, Devon and Somerset, older publications dealt with say, flowers or birds in either one or the other county, but lists for Exmoor as a whole were unknown.

Unfortunately, MANY ITEMS ARE NOW OUT OF PRINT. Priced items in the following list may still be available postage extra but please check with the Secretary, 12 King George Road, Minehead, TA24 5JD. Tel. 01643 707624. email before sending any money. Out of print items may be sought at second-hand bookshops.
