GSL Publishing House Warehouse Closure

The Bath Warehouse is closed for essential maintenance until 27 September. No orders will be dispatched during this time.


Please note: the card payment option on the online bookshop is currently unavailable due to an upgrade. If you wish to place an order please complete and submit an order here and we will email a link for secure online payment.

As a consequence of the continuing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic the Publishing House sales office and warehouse in Bath is open on a part-time basis with reduced staff. Marketing, Production and Editorial Development departments continue to work remotely.

The health and well-being of our colleagues, members and customers is our top priority. We are carefully monitoring the situation and will update this page to keep everyone informed of service delays or announcements.

Please allow 3 to 4 weeks for bookshop orders to be dispatched.

Please email us with any queries and questions – the majority of staff are working remotely and will attend to your query as soon as possible. Please email Bath reception for general enquiries or sales for book orders and non-member subscriptions. See 'Information for authors' for production contacts.

Burlington House: The Society's offices in London are currently only open to Library visitors by appointment. All other departments remain closed to visitors. Please see the updates page for more details.
