Intriguing book titles, locally produced gifts and home cooked food, it sounds too good to be true! Tasteful, locally produced gifts make that hard to find present a little easier.  From ceramics to crafts,  paintings to photographs, jewellery to witches.  The huge range of cards offers one of the largest selections in the area. There’s something for everyone – local views, humour, works of art – birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations, new arrivals, the list goes on!

The book section have received good plaudits  see below. With a focus on local history, architecture, archaeology, general history, railways, canals (after all we’re very close to the famous Barrowford locks), some rather unusual titles which are changing all the time and some lovely volumes published by the Bodleian library, this is ideal for the bibliophiles among you.

Typical comments from customers:

Whenever I visit my son who lives nearby I call in to the bookshop and invariably leave with a selection of purchases!’ 

‘You have the best range of books we have seen for years.’ 

‘For the size of the shop you have an amazing selection of books’.


After visiting the shop …. Enjoy a home made lunch which may include vegetables from the Heritage garden in the licensed tea room. If you are there in the afternoon why not try one of the delicious cakes with some coffee?
