The Oldfield Park Bookshop was started by Harry Wainwright in 2002, and has flourished as a local independent ever since. Prior to this Harry had over twenty years experience in the book trade (including many years working for Waterstones in various management roles), and his knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for books knows no bounds! In more recent years he has been helped by Philip, who has added much to the business. They will try to track down pretty much any book if they can, and both aim to offer as high a standard of customer service as possible.

The website has been designed to complement the shop, and aims to offer a selection of titles, but by no means everything available. The shop can provide a fuller service, so if there is anything you cannot find just get in touch and we will do our best to help. Harry’s selection of the top 30 books each month is always popular, and the shop is also a keen supporter of local book groups, so there are sections devoted to these areas on the website – if you are wondering what local groups are reading have a browse through the book group category. Any omissions let us know!

Harry is a keen supporter of local schools, and is happy to help with any requirements and recommendations – contact the shop if you would like more information.
