Writing in his world famous James Herriot's Yorkshire
country vet recounts a story about a Richmond man who died and went to heaven. Welcome to Richmond
St Peter, at the gate, asked him where he was from.
"From Richmond," the man replied.
St. Peter shook his head sadly. "Ah well," he murmured,
"I'm afraid you aren't going to like it very much up here."
Indeed, as a place to visit, Richmond takes some beating but as a place to live, it's even better, and was
recently voted one of the top ten places to live in England.
Okay, it's fair to say that in September of 1975, when Castle Hill Bookshop opened for business, 'cyberspace' was only
accessible from the pages of a science fiction novel but, given time, two things happened. (1) Our business grew because of
the regular contact we had with customers worldwide and (2) Eventually the Internet caught up with us and we decided to launch
our specialist book site. Well, why not?
Seriously, for years we have been sending books to discerning readers all over the world. Many people first learned about us
through The Sunday New York Times
where our unusual adverts attracted much attention .... Some were told about our excellent
reputation by organisations like The Sierra Club
, who recommended us as the source
for Coast to Coast maps and guides .....
And recently many new customers found us in a Smithsonian
magazine article on the Coast To Coast walk.
We hope that we may now be able to serve you ..... If you are planning to take on the Coast To Coast walk, we will be pleased to send
you all the relevant material you'll need to make the experience 'as enjoyable as possible' ...... On the pages that follow, you can
read about what's available and what we recommend.
We make it easy for you to place your order, either online using the PayPal service or feel free to give us a call on +44 (0)1748 824243 -
the choice is yours
We keep all the items listed on our site 'in stock' and are usually able to fulfil your order the same day we receive it.
Our delivery charges are shown on each product as we believe it is important that you know about these up front, rather than discovering them after you've
spent time deciding what you want to buy.
But please remember you only need pay for shipping once on you order.
