Welcome to Barton’s Bookshop. We are a family-run bookshop with a wide range of titles. The books, events and information shown on our website are only one aspect of the service we offer. Inside the shop, we specialise in tracking down specific titles for individual customers. If a book is in print and legally on sale we should be able to obtain it for you from anywhere in the world. If it is out of print – just ask. We operate an efficient out-of-print book search service and pride ourselves on our success rate.
Those of you who are able to visit the shop can enjoy a free cup of freshly-brewed coffee and sit on the Chesterfield by the inglenook fireplace with Henry our giant 34 year old teddy bear. Call in for children's and adults' events, from signings to story-time and our amazing seasonal celebrations.
We do shut on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday and hope you can forgive this weakness and lack of service on our part.
