Books on the Lane celebrates the joy
and beauty of nature with the printed word



We are an independent bookshop in an old joinery workshop situated in the village of Walton and we specialise in nature-writing. Plus fiction, children’s nature, flora, gardening, travel, food and drink, and second-hand books about gardening.

We also sell herb plants and bee-loving perennials  (in season)

Most of our book prices are the full RRP because profit from our shop supports youth music in Yorkshire – 2020 Barnsley Youth Choir. So please remember –  while you might be able to purchase your book a little cheaper elsewhere, a purchase from Books on the Lane is your next reading adventure and also supports young people and the future of live music.
