Bolton Bicycling Bookshop

A mobile bookshop, by bike!

Lockdown means that normal bookshops will be closed. But the new Bolton Bicycling Bookshop offers free home delivery in the Bolton area, for Lancashire Loominary publications and The Settle-Carlisle Railway (by me, published by Crowood). And there are still places open that are selling my book (see page ‘Buying my books’)

I can deliver the following:

Moorlands, Memories and Reflections

The Works

With Walt Whitman in Bolton

Lancashire’s Romantic Radical: the life and writings of Allen Clarke/Teddy Ashton

Will Yo’ Come O’ Sunday Mornin’?

The Settle-Carlisle Railway

Go to the ‘Buying My Books’ page to order, or just ring me on 07795 008691 and tell me what you want and where you live. Can do cash on delivery. If you prefer designating a safe and sheltered place e.g. garage, porch, woodshed, let me know.

Buying my books: order form and retail outlets

The Fleet

I mainly deliver on my Raleigh Motus e-bike: a conventional bike in some respects, but with ‘pedal assist’ to get up the hills!

Sometimes I use my ‘ordinary’ bike and even on special occasions get out the Elswick Hopper.
