Our customers love local history and characters and our bestsellers often reflect this; currently Dennis Skinner’s Sailing Close to the Wind is flying off the shelves, and Howard Sprenger’s Rails to Ripley and Adrian Farmer’s Belper from Old Photographs continue to be popular.

Faith on a Derbyshire Hillside by David Hawgood is a recent ‘blockbuster’ for us.

Of course, if you are seeking a more mainstream page-turner, we stock a range of contemporary fiction. We leave some of the expensive hardbacks to the supermarkets who can price us out of the market; however, the paperbacks we really love we have in the shop so we can recommend them to you in person!

Of course, we can order any book you can think of and we will always give you the fairest price we are able to.
