About Us

Wenlock Books.

Wenlock Books is an independent bookshop celebrating twenty-five years in Much Wenlock, Shropshire. We are passionate about books and will give you all the help you need to find the ones you want - including maybe some you didn't know you wanted!

Here at Wenlock Books we celebrate real books which will last a lifetime: not just the standard editions, but also quality imprints of the classics, such as Eland Books for travel literature, Persephone for 20th century women's writing, the recently founded Little Toller Books for British nature writing and rural life, Vintage Children's Classics for young ones and of course Everyman's for a library of essential volumes.

We hold a range of children's books for all ages, contemporary fiction and poetry, history, local books, cookery, country interest, biographies and more. Our stock is hand-picked and much loved, being based to a large extent on our own reading and our customers' favourite recommendations.

We sell a wide range of classical CDs, including the budget-price Naxos catalogue but also many harder to find labels; world music and jazz, too. You can also buy book tokens, best quality fountain pens and lots of greetings cards in the shop.

Upstairs we have an extensive second-hand books department, where you can browse for hours in tranquillity, surrounded by ancient oak beams and with lots of nooks and crannies to lose yourself in.

"Much ado about Wenlock"

"As recommendations for our database of the UK's finest independent bookshops came flooding in, one name stood out: Wenlock Books in Much Wenlock in Shropshire. Sarah Crown visited the shop to find out what all the fuss was about and emerged full of tea, cake ... and the highest praise."
