What a delight I have uncovered today!
For Mothers’ Day, I decided that I would take Ollie to Barton Marina, which boasts a fabulous selection of shops and eateries, situated on the
Trent and close to Burton on Trent. Mersey Canal
When I discovered The Book Barge on the canalside, I could have been accused of being similar to a child in a sweet shop! Even though the
itself was hustle and bustle, the contrast of this delightfully relaxing sanctuary for book lovers was a pleasure to experience. Marina
Open daily except for Tuesdays, Sarah at The Book Barge sells and displays a range of classic, contemporary and children's fiction.
Step aboard this unusual and exceptional book shop to browse the carefully chosen range of stock, and come across both paperbacks and hardbacks which are new and some which are antique. Sarah truly offers a quality alternative to the regular high street bookstore.
Checkout the website www.thebookbarge.co.uk to find out about upcoming events. Well worth a visit, The Book Barge is a true delight for bookworms to while away an hour or two in this wonderful treasure trove of delight. I shall certainly be coming back when I don’t have a three and a half year old tugging at my coat tails!
