Store Description

We have been selling books with some success for over twenty years. In 1995, we opened a bookshop in the Peak District village of Castleton and traded successfully there until 2010. In addition to selling through the shop we developed an Internet business and built a reputation for a good and reliable service. The stock, which covers a wide range of subjects, but particularly ornithology and natural history, has constantly been improved. In March of 2010 we moved to a private residence in Broomhill, Sheffield where we established a book room to house the best of our stock. Customers are welcome to visit and view our stock by appointment(tel: 0114 268 9393 or books@hawkridge.co.uk).
