Come and browse!

With over 11,000 books in stock the best way to view them is to come in for a browse. We also serve free coffee! So if you want to lose yourself among thousands of books on all sorts of interesting subjects then do please pop along. While we have great stocks of very reasonably priced paperback fiction and crime fiction, we also focus on the more serious side with a very good selection of history, military, biography, art and other reference books. These books are selected by us to ensure that customers are presented with books (in most part) they probably won’t see in the large chain-shops. In short, we offer something different.

There is plenty of free parking outside the shop.

Some of our acquisitions, past & present


We have a great stock of popular fiction, much of which is up to date, but also many of the timeless “modern” classics and of course the traditional classics such as Dickens, Hardy, Trollope etc. together with children’s and teen’s fiction, science fiction & horror.


Crime Corner

Our crime section is bursting with great reads, from the modern punchy Lee Child to the more sedate Agatha Christie, along with many of the rarer vintage crime from the 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s.


Our non-fiction includes History, Local History, Military, Aviation, Transport (Trains, Planes, Ships, Cars & Buses), Travel, Adventure, Biographies, Art, Politics, Natural History, Sport, Fishing, Hobbies & Crafts,  Science & Engineering, Religion, Gardening, Cookery, Fashion, Music & popular culture. To appreciate it, browsing is essential!


Collectable Books

We have a huge selection of collectable books including illustrated children’s books, rare crime novels, antiquarian books, and also a great range of “presentation” books which make great gifts.
