High Peak Bookstore – Book Tour on Four Wheels
Brierlow Bar, Buxton, SK17 9PY
One of the most local accessible bookshops to where we live is almost a barn (I think it may have been called a bookbarn originally) which is packed with books. The car park (the advantage of being in the middle of the countryside) is gravel covered, with a few spaces being reserved for disabled customers. The entrance is wide and flat with a slope. All of the areas are accessible within the shop, including the lower room, the children’s room and the excellent cafe.
The books are remaindered and all new, which means that there are many surprises to be found within the huge selection of fiction, non fiction and everything else. There are huge art books, local books (which are full price), craft books, history, literature , politics, travel as well as fiction which includes a large selection of crime novels. Most are paperbacks, but there are also some hardbacks and even audio books to be found, as well as classics. It is best to go with an open mind, but as virtually all the books are at discounted prices I would be confident that you would find many things to buy. It is well worth a visit!
