Coast to Coast Guides
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.
in his world famous James Herriot's Yorkshire, the country vet
recounts a story about a Richmond man who died and went to heaven.
St Peter, at the gate, asked him where he was from.
Richmond," the man replied.
shook his head sadly. "Ah well," he murmured,
you aren't going to like it very much up here."
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.
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?

the world. Many people first learned about us through The
Sunday New York Times where our unusual adverts attracted much attention

for Coast to Coast maps and guides ..... And recently many new customers
found us in a Smithsonian magazine article on the Coast To Coast
