Belton House Secondhand Bookshop
Belton House (National Trust)
Belton 
GRANTHAM  Lincolnshire  NG32 2LW   map
tel: 01476 566116  e-mail  web
Open:  7 days all year, March - October 9.30 - 5.30. November - February 9.30 - 4.00.
Only accessible to paying visitors or NT members. Boasting a huge range of good quality books all very reasonably priced, all proceeds from the bookshop go towards caring for Belton House. Belton’s secondhand bookshop is run by volunteers, who organise all the donations received from supporters. Make a day of it, Belton House contains one of the Trust's most significant libraries.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsOn my way to Hull to see a sick Uncle, I spotted a sign to this place and having seen it on TBG I took the exit and the short detour. What a place. A stunning house and grounds with the bookshop located in the courtyard in a venue and with stock that would put many a regular S/H bookshop and many charity shops to shame. When you add the excellent modern fiction and crime section to the ambiance and the friendly, welcoming, intelligent and literate staff and factor in the insanely low prices, (Oxfam take note!) this was well worth the short detour from the A1.NB the shop is open even when the House is closed to visitors. - Jon Morgan 23.10.17.
    Beware - no access is allowed to the bookshop without paying for entrance to the grounds - minimum £12 if you are not an NT member. - Rob Metcalfe 14.06.18.
    Really pleased to see that some of our NT secondhand bookshops have been reviewed in the Book Guide. I am the secondhand bookshops research and development volunteer, and part of my remit is to both increase the number of shops across the NT and also increase the number of visitors who use our shops. I am impressed with your publication. - Philip Louis Winterbottom 04.06.19.
    I'm always happy to list bookrooms and shops at NT properties - provided that they are visitable without having to pay for an entry fee. tbg 04.06.19.

Three books stalls, Full Circle Books (paperback fiction), Shane Chapman Books(non-fiction, first editions, bindings and antiquarian) & Unicorn Tree Books (new and secondhand books on a variety of subjects, particularly Christian). See market website above for more details

 Add a comment  Hide commentsFull Circle Books - Mainly for readers, particularly those who enjoy Mills & Boone. However I did spot a few interesting vintage paperbacks in the Science Fiction and Westerns sections. Shane Chapman Books - Seemed more of a Book Fairy than a traditional market stall holder. Keen on Folio Society and also Military. Above average calibre and condition, prices to match. Unicorn Tree Books - Lots of books across many categories. Keen on Christianity, of which there were some interesting s/h books on display along with many new ones. I kept thinking I had found a bargain before realizing that it was a new book and still full price. - Steven Whitehead 09.09.17.

We have re-opened our bookshop on North Street, stocking an eclectic mix of secondhand and out of print books. We are also offering teas, coffees and homemade bakes to complement browsing. We also continue run our ever popular Books 3 section from the garage at Number 23 (All books 3 for One Pound).

 Add a comment  Hide commentsThree sections: 1.Variously priced 2. all £2 and 3. Any 3 books for £1! The 3 for a pound books aren't all rubbish, good stuff can be found and this section has recently extended. The owner is very obliging and always keen to help. - The Jumping Frog 02.09.10.
    This is an excellent, well organised bookshop with a realistic attitude to selling. The friendly staff are very helpful and I always come away with something worthwhile (usually in several bags). The stock is interesting and there is a good turn over, so repeated visits usually turn up new treasures. - Nicholas Pendower 16.08.11.
    Re-opened in 2017. - tbg 11.04.17.

Jabberwock Books
14-16 St. Lawrence Street
HORNCASTLE  Lincolnshire  LN9 5BJ   map
tel: 01507 522112  e-mail  web
Open: Monday - Saturday 10.00 - 4.30.
Stock covers most areas, with substantial sections of literature, poetry, art, travel and history. Books range from the rare and antiquarian to the newly-published (the latter usually for sale in fine condition at half their new price or less). Established 20 years and expanded in 2006. Occupies two adjoining buildings, steeped in Horncastle's past. (History shelves backed by Roman Wall).

 Add a comment  Hide commentsA large bookshop. Much of the stock is nearly new, not particularly good on fiction, certainly not vintage fiction, not a bad entertainment section. Compared to the other Horncastle shops, slightly pricey. - The Jumping Frog 02.09.10.

Jews Court Bookshop

Steep Hill 
LINCOLN  Lincolnshire  LN2 1LS   map

Open: Daily 10.00 - 4.00.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsA small well-organised stock emphasising local history and also stocks new books on local history (and new books in the Shire series). - Bridget the Browser.
    Small but very nicely set out, priced very reasonable. - The Wanderer 30.07.09.
    Shop comprises two distinct rooms. To the right is the bigger room, selling mainly new books on local history and folklore. To the left is a smaller room containing a range of secondhand general stock. - Simon T 11.08.11.Be aware that opening hours appear flexible - a decision to visit this shop after the nearby 'Collection' resulted in meeting a 'Closed' sign at 14:40 in spite of the sign advertising 10:00-16:00 daily. - Nick 22.10.15.
    Well organised and laid out. No dusty corners here. Well worth half an hour of anyone's time. - Ian 13.07.17.

Lindum Books

Open: Monday, Tuesday & Friday 9.30 - 5.00. Wednesday, Thursday & Saturday 9.30 - 5.30. Sunday & Bank Holidays 10.00 - 4.00.
Being a stockist of secondhand books brings depth and excitement to the shop, whilst the stocking of new up-to-the-minute books keeps us young, inviting and inclusive. We have separate new and old sections on general subjects. Children’s books are a particular strength, with a dedicated children’s book corner.

Long Sutton 
SPALDING  Lincolnshire  PE12 9ED   map
tel: 01406 362 991

 Add a comment  Hide commentsOne of a growing number of such places I am coming across. Basically a group of dealers get together to rent out a large disused retail area, which is then divided up into smaller areas for rent. A very interesting place to look for all things collectable, but also has a fair number of interesting books at reasonable prices amongst the other paraphernalia. So, not strictly a book shop, but has far more books for sale than some dedicated bookshops I have been to. - Steve Newman 16.08.11.
    There is a remote possibility that, on the right day, you could pick up something interesting here (there is a unit that stocks a comprehensive selection of railway books and magazines, but otherwise there is a VERY limited offering elsewhere in the centre). Personally I'd not risk a trip unless I was combining this shop with some others in the area. - Nicholas Pendower 26.07.14.

A huge selection of books from all genres, plus audiobooks, CDs, vinyl, sheet music.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsI almost did not go in as the shop front is tiny - looking like an old tobacconist's kiosk. Also it had a table outside covered with what can only be described as rejects from Hay on Wye. However I did go in and was glad I had as the shop seems bigger on the inside; it certainly goes back a long way. Chap on the till was e.t.g.o.w. and was keen to promote the shop as a bookshop and was talking of starting a book club. More books than music and a good children's section. Not WAD but certainly worth a visit if you are already in Lincoln. - Steven Whitehead 09.09.17.

Pegasus Children's Books - where children's imaginations are given wings and take flight! Discounts available for schools and clubs.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsNow joined with Browse Awhile. Overpriced and every book comes with a sticker on the back cover obscuring the bottom third of the cover and which, according to the owner when asked, "is not designed to be removed". No way to get it off without damaging the book severely. - The Wanderer 30.07.09.

A large amount of general stock, all subjects, all secondhand, all reasonably priced. Tens of thousands of books, new additions every weekend.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsRebecca continues the business founded in the 1980s by her late husband Alan Redmond. So, long established and a great bookshop which I visit nearly every weekend myself. Shaun Tyas 12.04.11.
    I'm so pleased to see that Rebecca Redmond continues to run this delightful business. I loved visiting it when I lived in Lincs. and so enjoyed my conversations with Alan. - Robert Tucker 18.11.11.
    This is a treasure trove that is well worth the detour. The owner is always very helpful and her prices are both extremely reasonable and very consistent.. The stock is large and interesting, with a good turn-over and we always come away with a box load. Don't miss it! - Nicholas Pendower 08.09.12.
    This bookshop is totally unique and blows my socks off! Very reasonable prices and I've come across some real treasures. Be prepared to spend a very long time there. - Minnow 30.11.13.
     Books big and small on SO many subjects at prices to suit pocket-money, purses and wallets! Definitely worth visiting if you like books and bargains. It will be hours well spent.- Greenlady13 07.09.17.
    Excellent selection of reasonably priced books, and a helpful owner. Remarkable number of guides to historic buildings. - TR 15.09.17.
    This unique book-lovers experience is still there for a great browse. Not to be missed when in Lincolnshire and worth the effort. - Greenlady13 31.05.18.
    Here is Narnia, here be Dragons, Tom's Midnight Garden and Proust. Here time stands still until you visit again and find more treasures. I urge every bookworm to float this Stream of Consciousness. Thanx, Rebecca. - Terry 19.10.19.

Open: Monday - Saturday 9.30 - 1.00 & 2.15 - 5.00. Closed on Wednesdays.
We specialise in rare and out-of-print books about railways, other transport and industrial history. We also stock a wide selection of new books on railways. Our shop has recently moved to new premises at 59 Scotgate.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsExcellent transport stock, shame about the prices (around 20% too much). - Paul Simpson 28.07.09.
    Lovely clean, tidy and well presented premises at Stamford Station. The amount of natural light gives a warmth to browsing the quite superb selection of railway and transport stock. Shelves full to the brim without it being difficult to read titles. Prices at the top end but that is what you pay for quality. - Chris Harte 20.04.10.
    Broad range of new and secondhand books, notably railways, with prices at the higher end of the scale, but always worth a visit. - Steve Brissel 22.10.12.Agree with the other reviewers that this shop is very bright, clean and well maintained in their new premises. There is some general bargain books in between the 2 entrance doors and I'm glad I didn't heed the advice of St. Mary's and St. Paul's bookshops who both stated this shop was railways only. He, in fact, has a large collection of aviation, maritime, naval and waterways stock at the back of the shop near to the stairs. Unfortunately for me that was where the good news ended as the pricing was sky high so no purchases made. Perhaps he should update his website to better reflect all the categories of books he stocks? - Laurence Batchelor 23.10.18.

St. Marys Books and Prints
The owner objects to one of our reader's comments. He declined the invitation to respond publicly and has asked for his listing to be removed. TBG 15.04.09.

Good quality antiquarian and secondhand books bought and sold, especially Lincolnshire and Fenland topography, "BB", John Clare and motoring.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsGood selection in small shop on two floors. Most reasonably priced and always worth a visit. - Steve Brissel 22.10.12.
    Owner very helpful. I left my glasses there by accident. He bought a glasses case & sent them back to me. - Mr Superbus 15.06.13.
    A very orderly PBFA member shop with stock spread over 2 floors. A good selection of military books upstairs but I found the pricing much higher than St.Mary's bookshop sometimes for the same book in the same condition. Despite a town centre location, turnover must be low, as many of the books were the same on the shelves today as visible online for Google filmed some years ago. In my opinion, books should be priced low in store to encourage footfall and not merely 'abebooks priced'. 1 purchase made but it could have been a lot more if the pricing was more competitive. - Laurence Batchelor 23.10.18.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsSue Ryder appear to be the latest chain of Charity Shops moving into 'specialist' areas. I assume this one is fairly new as I could find no reference to it as a book & music shop on their website. Afraid I forgot to get opening times, I had not realised it was not in the guide.
    This particular shop has a good general range of books at reasonable prices too. Oxfam please take note! - Steve Newman 16.08.11.
    This charity shop knocks spots off some so-called real bookshops Ive visited. The interesting, good quality stock, which extends to antiquarian volumes, is very well presented, and prices are extremely fair (while there are certainly bargains to be had, the higher end material is marked at reasonable bookshop prices; BUT be reassured - they dont ask the exorbitant rates seen in most Oxfam shops). There is also an excellent music section, including vinyl, CDs and sheet music. The members of staff are always helpful and welcoming and this shop is well worth the detour and should not disappoint the collector or those who just enjoy a good browse. - Nicholas Pendower 22.10.12.
    Whilst continuing to display a good range of well presented books, prices for much of the stock have rocketed in recent times. The prices asked Indeed one could say that they rival even the most expensive Oxfam's! I looked at a couple of books I would have bought, but not at the inflated prices asked. Still a few reasonable priced items, but by no means the norm now. - Steve Newman 19.08.17.
    Well worth a visit to Spalding just to go to this excellent establishment. I do not think prices are high and have not noticed any recent great increases as mentioned in another comment. And the bargain box - unmissable. - Chris du Feu 28.11.19.

General secondhand books, CD's, DVD's.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsA rather haphazard secondhand book shop with some bric-a-brac throw in. It's worth a visit because there's a lot of books to look through, with some gems tucked away behind the paperback fiction. Be prepared for a rummage! - Bridget the Browser.
    'Cluttered but wide variety of books, very reasonably priced, friendly owner. Well worth the short walk from main town centre and the park opposite has toilets and a cafe which makes great coffee.' - The Wanderer 30.07.09.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsThis recently-started charity bookshop (2018) is great. Excellent range of titles, good condition and sensible prices, and friendly. Well worth a visit and easy parking further down the road. Bodes well for the future! - Shaun Tyas 06.12.18.

A new bookshop in Brigg North Lincolnshire. We stock new books downstairs and second hand books and vinyl upstairs.

A large collection of second hand books - paperback, hardback - fiction - non-fiction - children's plus CDs, DVDs, videos and electrical items. Greetings cards and gift items are available too. The Storyteller is a bookshop run by St Barnabas Hospice. All proceeds go towards the care of the people of Lincolnshire with a life limiting illness.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsI love this shop. If I go looking for a certain book and it's not there, 90% of the time its there the following week. Fantastic friendly staff too. - Vic 12.04.11.
    This is a shop that has a reasonable local trade, with an extensive stock of paperbacks, but I would suggest that the serious collector would find little of any interest here. - Nicholas Pendower 26.07.14.
    I understand that the Storyteller at the Forum is to be relocated to the upstairs of the St Barnabas charity shop, this will make it out of bounds to a lot of its customers IE The elderly, the young,disabled as those stairs are very narrow and steep. - Bob 17.10.14.

20,000+ books, all subjects, wide range of prices, general stock. Advice and assistance given freely without commitment.

 Add a comment  Hide commentsTotal and utter chaos! Piles and piles of books prevent buyers from retrieving anything worthwhile, and where there is space the hoover is stuck in the way. I spotted a few things I would have liked to have looked at, but was afraid of excavating for fear of setting off an avalanche and ending my days under a pile of books! I'm sure that there are some good things in this shop but nobody has a hope in hell of finding them while it's in this state. - Nicholas Pendower 27.07.10.
    Yes it's mad, with books piled everywhere, but it's my favourite bookshop! I always come out with lots of books. The owner can always find the books you're looking for even if they're at the bottom of the pile! - The Jumping Frog 02.09.10.
    Oh My ... Chaos is a understatement ... this guy needs to have a clear out ... some really great books but most ruined by the 20-100 books piled on top. I'd love to have to look to find a corker but to mountaineer through piles and pile and piles is not really great!!! - TT 29.07.13.
    Never seen any shop like it - very cluttered (I caused one avalanche!) but exceedingly charming and owner knows exactly where every book is and clearly a lifetime of dedication has gone into this curious but wonderfully eccentric shop. - John H 29.08.13.
    An H&S nightmare - piles of books (much of it modern paperback fiction) 5-6 feet high and in places 3-4 deep obscure the interesting titles on the shelves behind. I fled in despair after 5-10 minutes. - Henry Middleton 21.06.14.
    Planning a visit this summer. One of my very favourite shops - and that's based on just a couple of visits. Not twee, not self-conscious - like the bookshops of my youth ... - Andrew Bradley 03.07.14.
    Every time I visit Horncastle, which is usually once a month, I consider visiting this bookshop, and even occasionally venture inside in the hope that I just might be able to spend some money, but sadly it remains virtually unexplorable. The vast array of paperback tat piled up inside the door is, before you even consider looking elsewhere, enough to put off the serious buyer and requires serious weeding out. If you are not one of nature's sylphs, it is almost impossible to negotiate the rest of the stock; I'd dearly love to see what this shop really has to offer, but life is too short for these sort of excavations. - Nicholas Pendower 26.07.14. Can I move in here? Chaos abounds, but still a bloody good shop, filled with goodies. Lot of stuff half price, including a rare Edgar Rice Burroughs. - Andrew Bradley 14.08.14.
    Although I had said in my previous review (02.09.10) that it was my favourite bookshop, it had got too much even for me, but what a shock to return to Tim Smith books today and find that, it's no longer complete and utter chaos, but has been tided up and under the piles and piles of books there is a really great bookshop. Yes it's still packed with books but you can see (most) of them and it's still cramped and more than a bit mad, but not too much and anyway a secondhand bookshop needs to be at least a bit mad to be worthwhile. - The Jumping Frog 03.12.14.
    Earlier comments are now out-of-date as Tim's domestic problems have been resolved and, with the help of excellent friends, this shop packs a large, comprehensive and well-organised stock into a very modest space. Don't miss it! - Tony Laverick 24.04.15.
    Most impressed with the tidy up, turns what was trial by ordeal into pleasant browsing. I certainly got a few out of the blue bargains on my last visit. and will certainly be heading there again. - Paul Dean 27.06.15.

    This is not a sophisticated shop, but if you're looking for an interesting selection at realist and sensible prices then it is always worth a visit. The back room is full of books at £1 and there are some bargains to be had. A really friendly owner who will go out of his way to be helpful. Always worth a visit if you're in the area. - Nicholas Pendower 26.07.14.
    I can echo the above comments, having spent the best part of an hour in the shop, and come away with 'ten books for a tenner' all in good condition. The haphazard arrangement of stock counts in its favour, as you encounter categories you wouldn't always look for. Great fun! - Michael Pearson 03.12.14.
    Visited on 19 Dec, unfortunately, sign in window says shop has closed early for Christmas, in Oct, reopening in late Feb! - Stuart T 24.12.18.
