– getting in touch –
We take book orders and answer queries over the phone, by email, twitter, instagram and facebook if you can’t get in to see us. Books will usually be ready for collection within a day or two. We can post books out (there’s a small charge for p&p).
– parking –
There’s lots of parking around the bookshop, including Fleet Street Car Park directly opposite and West St Car Park round the corner. Most Chorley Council car parks are free for at least 1 hour and after 1pm on Saturdays. Even if you have to pay, we think they’re still good value.

A weakness for American literature esp Southern Gothic and Armistead Maupin. Intends to read more poetry. Best part of the job – our lovely customers, buying books for the shop and pretending they’re for me, everything really.
Bookseller at 18, librarian at 30, bookseller again at 55. Approaching 40 years in the book world. Best part of the job – recommending something I’ve loved and selling it!
