Second-hand books

Stock up your book shelves for winter and support the National Trust as you peruse. On open days, 10am - 3.30pm until 21 November, then returning in January.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The second-hand books have made a new home in the Victorian laundry. There's everything you could imagine and more from fiction, biographies, history and gardening. The volunteers will be topping up the supplies often over the weeks so pop in whenever you're visiting as there's always room for one more. There's a donation box to leave your cash or use the text to donate information in the room. Thank you in advance and to the supporters who donate books over the year - recycling at its best. There's a pause to book sales in December as a very special guest is visiting and the elves will be decorating in readiness.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
