Welcome to the Raven Bookshop

The shop was started many years ago by Peter Alltree and holds on to its particular topics, including history, local history, travel, life writing, thrillers and classic fiction.

In addition, we now cater for a wider variety of tastes: children’s books, architecture, philosophy, politics and espionage.

What we Buy & Sell

We love our crime fiction here at the shop, so we need a reliable consistent source of paperbacks. 

We are particularly interested in the following authors, in paperback only please: Peter James, Lee Child, Kate Atkinson, Peter Lovesay, Agatha Christie, Jo Nesbo, David Baldacci.

We sell and are also actively looking to source philosophy, local history, history, black history, politics, economics. 

We also sell some antiquarian books, which are featured on our web site.
