A real treasure of a place. Small, charity bookshop with volunteer staff. An excellent range of books of all stripes. Prices very reasonable - many books only £1.00 and in good condition. Don't miss it

A cute little shopworn lots of books ranging from History, Non-Fiction, fiction and more. Most books are one and two dollars and we were told the money goes to charity. Lovely little shop, with helpful and friendly staff.
