Second-hand bookshop

Discover a treasure trove of pre-loved tomes, with books for all ages and interests. The second-hand bookshop is run by a team of dedicated volunteers who ensure the shelves are constantly brimming with books. Pop in to pick up a bargain or even try something new with blind date a book. 

The proceeds from book sales raise funds for conservation projects all around the house. Every book you see in the shop is kindly donated by visitors, volunteers and staff.

Book art

Volunteers have been getting creative this season to give a new lease of life for some of the more tired and damaged books. Take a look at some of the new designs on display. All money raised goes back into supporting Claydon.
