As a frequenter of bookshops I have never seen so many pre-owned books in one place. Its difficult to work out whats where as there own so many crammed into the building. They do however have it all catalogued so you can ask or phone to ask for any particular interests you have

A great range of reasonably priced secondhand books. Bought 3 books for a tenner. Could have spent more time and money. Friendly and helpful.

Although I live nearby and go fairly frequently, I always see something new and irresistible whenever I go. It shares the premises with a framers, and last time I went just for a frame because I have a huge pile of... More
