Our Location

Housed in converted 18th century stone barn at our farmstead is a stock of 24,000 general secondhand and antiquarian books covering a wide range of subjects.


On the left hand side tool bar you can create a list of selected theological books by clicking on the relevant catalogue. Similarly you will see on the right hand tool bar a growing list of other subject areas. You can search our stock by using the author or title box or create your own catalogue by using the keyword box. 

"A journey into the middle of nowhere was rewarded by a friendly greeting, hot coffee and lots of chatter. This really is an oasis in the wilderness and the tens of thousands of titles on offer took some hours to browse and were a joy to behold. Only a fraction of the books are on the internet at the moment. There are many scarce titles on offer, particularly on field sports and rural pursuits."
- Chris Harte (TheBookGuide)
