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.
Pop in and see Laura who will help to point you in the right direction for your choice of book
