There has in fact been a bookshop here for 25 years, but the present owner Barry Townsend-Cardew came when his parents bought the shop in 1990 and suggested he should see if he would like to join them. Obviously he liked what he saw and has been here ever since.

Probably we can do no better that quote the words of one or our younger customers – wide selection of books at reasonable prices, open seven days a week’ all sorts of music played while you browse, first editions available, maps and atlases, art books. Great books and two adorable cats.
