While in Lincolnshire, we decided to visit Bourne in search of a bookshop. To my delight we found Bourne Bookshop. As you can see from the photos above it is a small shop, but well stocked with fiction, non fiction and children’s books. I called in and had the second door opened so it was a wide and completely flat access. Once in you can see that there is plenty of room to move around. There are plenty of just published hardback fiction books on display as well as paperbacks to look at and choose from. The place is bright and inviting, as well as having a friendly member of staff. I could have spent even more money in there than I did!
The card I was handed does not mention a website, but they invite enquiries on email@example.com , or by phone 01778 392777. The address is
19 North Street, Bourne, Lincolnshire PE10 9AE.
The business owner is Karen Smith. I am not sure of the opening hours – I believe they were generous (9 – 5.30) so I think you should have a good chance of getting in!
I am trying to track down more accessible bookshops in the UK for visiting – so if you know of one, or even work in one, please let me know! ( My definition of accessible is one that I can get into with my trusty powerchair Morgan – see above!)
