The Malcolm Saville Society

Orchard House
66 Derby Road
Derbyshire DE72 3NJ



The Society was formed in 1994 after some enthusiasts met to visit the Long Mynd and to celebrate 50 years of the Lone Pine books. The event was broadcast as a BBC Radio 4 Kaleidoscope Feature. Listen to introduction (171KB)

Since then over a thousand members of all ages with a common interest in Saville's work and a love of the English countryside have joined. The Society maintains strong links with the Saville family, many of whom are members of the Society.

The Society publishes four informative magazines each year. During the year we have events at locations mentioned in the books for walks, talks, picnics and treasure hunts.

In 2014 the Society also published a fully-illustrated bibliography of all Malcolm Saville's books. A free copy is sent to all new members on joining (while stocks last).

Members can also use our postal lending library to borrow books.
