22nd March 2008This used to be a smashing bookshop and i regularly travelled from Derby to Lincoln, a hundred mile-plus round trip, just to go and rummage. I've been going there for over ten years.Yesterday it had that feel of a shop about to go out of business. The stock is poor and nowhere near as wide-ranging as it used to be. The woman working there is non-communicative and completely ignorant. Sadly, so is the owner, a man who never smiles or says hello even to regulars.I predict it will close soon.

If you are looking up the hill, the shop on the right hand side is an old parish hall and appears from the outside to be the larger of the two shops.
