Holt Bookshop


As you may be aware the Holt Bookshop has reached the end of the line at its current location in Appleyard after thirteen years.

We are, however, very excited to announce that a new permanent home has been found in 26a Lions Court, just off the High Street behind the Black Apollo coffee shop. This will be managed by Keith Britten and Pam Horrocks, and although it will be a smaller shop there is every intention of keeping the character and philosophies of the original establishment.

Until we are out of the pandemic safely, we are intending to continue with telephone, postal and email orders.  We will also in the first instance continue with the local delivery service for those continuing in self isolation. There are also plans to offer private browsing sessions for those who wish to shop but are shielding vulnerable family members. It is also our hope to re-instate events of some kind as soon as social distancing allows.

We would love to see you in the new shop when it is open from Saturday 1st August, so please come and visit us.

If you have any queries, the contact details will all hopefully be remaining the same

We hope we can count on your continued support during these difficult times, and that you will give us the opportunity to show we can continue with the excellent service David and Cheryl have provided over the years.

Kind regards

Keith Britten
