Carnforth Bookshop – a Lancashire tradition since 1977

Carnforth Bookshop in Lancashire

North of Morecambe and east of the M6, Carnforth Bookshop is an independent, family-run business in the historic town of Carnforth in a part of Lancashire where there’s a hint of the seaside in the air.

Located on Market Street on a very recognizable brick building, the shop was established in 1977 and visitors will find books on three floors. The second-hand department stocks more than 150,000 books alone. New books are on the ground floor. You browse via themed rooms – and they include local interest, maps, railways and transport, children’s books, art, biographies and history.

There is a large selection of local interest books on various Lancastrian matters – from food to walking to nature and history – and many walking guides as this part of the world is a hiker’s heaven. Carnworth itself is close to the coast and the hills. The River Keer, the West Coast trainline, the Lancaster Canal and the A6 all pass through the town.

    Hello! I was in Carnforth in 77-78 studing at Capernwray. Spent many happy hours in the village and was wondering if you have a website to find books?
