Hidden on the Heath

Before the snow took hold and we were all marooned, we paid a visit to Blackheath’s charming little bookshop, hidden away in the village. The Independent rate it one of Britain’s 50 best bookshops and I can see why.

It’s a real find, filled with old posters, maps, original art and a large selection of rare and collectable books many of them first editions!

Hidden away in the corner I stumbled across a couple of boxes of old theatre, opera and ballet programmes dating from as far back as the 19th Century. What a treat.
