Welcome to

Home Page

The Shell County Guides were published from 1934 to 1984, under the General Editorship of John Betjeman and John Piper. This site has been developed as an information and resource site for collectors of the series, with a history, bibliography and collector's guide. Although put together in the age of dial-up and Freeserve, I am managing to do occasional updates, the latest in 2012 to reflect recent developments including the Heritage Shell Guides series.
