The Old Children’s Bookshelf

A delightful children's bookshop

With a tiny entrance hall, light main room and snug back room, The Old Children’s Bookshelf is a marvellous place to indulge your own nostalgia or the inclinations of a young friend. There are school stories, illustrated books, ghost stories and historical novels. Enid Blyton fans will rarely find such an extensive collection, whilst picture paperbacks will be popular with younger visitors.
