Books on display in a second hand bookshop

Visit the second hand book room on the first floor and pore over the shelves to find an interesting read.

All of the books in our second hand book shop have been kindly donated. Then our volunteers sort, price and shelve the books for you to peruse. There is always a wide and changing selection from crime to romance novels and a great non-fiction choice including cookery, gardening and sporting books.

Explore the shelves, find something that tickles your fancy and then you can find a quiet corner to curl up and begin reading. All of the chairs at the house can be sat on, so hunt around and find your cosy spot.

New donations of books are always welcomed, and all the money given for the books is used at Leith Hill Place either for ongoing building maintenance such as painting, or in funding new interpretation at the house. You can bring any donations to the house when it is open, or call on 01306 711685 to arrange a different time.
