The shop is located in an old station. A green bench outside sets the scene and the smells from the station cafe hit the senses as we walked in.
I have never been in a place like it.
Second hand books as far as the eye could see. Arranged on shelves according to theme and interspersed with literary quotes.
A roaring fire was in one corner and visitors were sat around it in cosy chairs, enjoying their books.
The railway theme was everywhere. My favourite part was the little train that chugged along the top of the bookshelves.
Children were pointing up to it, following it around as it made its journey across the store.
It was packed with people the day we visited, and rightly so. I was brought up on second hand books and library trips. I love the idea of passing books on and giving money to local shops and charity.
I could have spent hours in that lovely shop enjoying lunch by the fire. I could have also have spent a lot of money!
Thankfully I had a castle to get to...and this handsome man to keep me in check!
