Book-lovers are very welcome to inspect our stock at our Bakewell shop
Hawkridge Books is owned and run by Irene and Joe Tierney; customers are provided with a personal service and given individual attention. We have been in the book business for over 30 years and ran a bookshop in the Peak District village of Castleton for 15 years. That shop closed and in 2019 we moved our best stock to our new shop in Bakewell.
The current stock runs to some 9,000 volumes. Although we specialise in ornithology, where we have 1100 volumes, and natural history (700 volumes), we have books in all subjects. For example, we have 700 books published by the Folio Society, 400 history books, and a similar number on topography, including 200 books on Derbyshire. All our books are selected to ensure that they are in the best condition and any faults are mentioned.
Book-lovers are very welcome to visit us to inspect our stock.
