Welcome!

We sell new and secondhand books, and specialise in history - mainly military and local history, although there is also a good selection on transport and more general topics. If you can’t find the book you are looking for it’s always worth contacting us to see if it has just come in. We also buy books - good, relevant collections always considered. Occasionally we close down completely for a couple of weeks at a time. Any e-mail enquiries during such periods will receive an automated response and we will deal with your enquiries on return.

Next show is on Sunday August 13th. IPMS Avon in conjunction with Lincombe Barns wargames club.
Then , something different, - Bromyard Folk festival September 9-10th, with our crafts and local history books.
After that we will be at "Colours" , Wargames, Newbury on September 16th.
