Briar Ridge Books brings together the photography of Tracey Swain and verse of Hilary Jane Jones to celebrate the natural beauty of Shropshire and the Welsh Borderlands, where magic and mystery often linger unseen. See the many layers of our living landscape brought to life in haunting images with hidden secrets, and words that tease the mind and challenge the imagination. Fantasy, reality, or a trick of the eye - who can say? Our first book, 'The Wicked Wood, Part One of The Journey' was awarded runner up in the Writing Magazine prestigious Best Self Published Book Award 2012.

Our books are available from our online bookshop and can be ordered from most bookshops nationwide. Burway Books, in Church Stretton, keeps a large stock as do many other independent Shropshire bookshops. Waterstones and WH Smith are also stockists.

You can also find our books in your local library so please don't forget to ask for them.
