The second-hand bookshop at Quarry Bank
Pick up a page turner and help Quarry Bank’s story continue for future generations to come. Every year, the proceeds from the sales of second-hand books helps to fund vital conservation works at Quarry Bank, helping to look after thousands of historic objects and features from books to buildings, looms to landscapes, plants to posters and all sorts of interesting things in between.
" Reading novels has all the good effects of going into the countryside without the restraint and trouble of it - they dissipate thought and exhilarate the spirit."
Books with more than one story to tell . . .
Tucked between the pages of these well-loved novels and cherished books on our bookshop shelves, we've found all sorts of trinkets and curios, from letters and postage stamps to winning raffle tickets and family recipes.
" Read Mr Wilson’s Poetry – mediocre."
