Buying a book during Lockdown II (5th November to 2nd December 2020)

As we all know, books are essential items for many of us (although at the moment they are not being recognised as such!) and so we are sure that many may want to buy books during the next few weeks. Unfortunately we aren’t allowed to open the shop for browsers, but we would welcome orders via email or telephone. The new guidelines allow for us to operate a “click and collect” system from the shop door – although of course customers will not be allowed in. We will also be happy to deliver books locally and to wrap and post anywhere in the UK (we will cover postage as before). We plan to be in the shop between 10am and 2pm Monday to Saturday and during this time can take orders over the phone and also advise on any bookish topic.

So, to buy a book:

Phone us on 01242 361 362 between 10 am and 2pm Monday to Saturday, or email us at and we will take it from there!
