Coast to Coast About US

At the half-way-point on the Coast to Coast Walk, Mr Wainwright grants you a twenty-four hour respite 'in heaven' ... which is how the town of Richmond has often been described.
Writing in his world famous James Herriot's Yorkshire, the 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. Welcome to Richmond

"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?
