Local History

As a community bookshop we see keeping information on the history and development of the local area an important part of what we do. This is just a sample of our stock.

"The story begins with the Fleet River and a small settlement, which grew up at a place known as Battle Bridge, near the northern end of present-day Gray's Inn Road. Some of the earliest enterprises in the area were the spas, which developed around its springs, becoming fashionable resorts in the eighteenth century..."
