Description: Abebooks member

The shop opening hours are 10am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday inclusive.

Catering for most tastes, stock includes books on art, literature, cooking, country, BB, topography, geology, military, transport, mind & body, gardening, childrens', history, local history - you name it, we may well have it, and if its not in stock, well do our best to locate that elusive title at no charge - it's all part of the service we offer.

And for the fishing fraternity, there's hidden treasure in this 'tardis' of a shop. For anyone with an interest in angling and its history, we've a stock of over 3,000 titles, some of which are signed first editions by leading angling authors such as Yates, Buller and Taylor. Shelves bulge with good books, which vie for space with ephemera of some of the greatest anglers of the 20th/21st Century. Take time to visit the shop at 21 South Street and you'll see signed photographs alongside the legendary cased pike of Fred J. Taylor, MBE, and angling author and historian, Fred Buller.

Also on display are the rods and reels of Frank Sawyer, Peter Stone, Richard Walker and Chris Yates; hand-made floats by Richard Walker; a fly box signed by Hugh Falkus; old film footage of Walker's record carp, Clarissa, and slightly more quirky - scales from carp caught by Chris Yates from Redmire Pool. And of course, there's the rapidly-expanding National Fishing Hat Collection! All are gratefully received, so if you want to hang on to your best fishing hat, you'd better not wear it in the shop!
