Scope and content

The Cyder Press was a small press, established by Cheltenham and Gloucester College of Education in 1998 as an extension of the resources provided by the College's existing Dymock Poets Archive and Study Centre.

The principal function of the Press was to reprint long out-of-print or little-known works by the Dymock Poets themselves, and by other writers with cognate regional, literary or period connections. Each volume was introduced by a contemporary scholar.

In addition The Cyder Press also published the annual Laurie Lee Memorial Lecture, sponsored by the University at the Cheltenham Literature Festival.
