Visit Our Shop


Drawing by Zoe -


Books on the Lane is tucked away on Oakenshaw Lane, a boundary road of the pretty village of Walton, just south of Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

We have a comprehensive stock of titles covering nature writing, children’s nature books, flora, gardening, fiction, and non-fiction classics and best sellers.

We have a car park for customers and vehicular access is easy – we’re just a short ten minute drive from junction 39 of the M1 and also easy to access via bus/metro with a bus stop just two minutes away from our shop, and a footpath from Sandal/Agbrigg Railway Station just a ten minute walk from our shop door. Cyclists are welcome.

Our opening times

Tuesdays to Saturdays 9.30am to 4pm. 

Profit from Books on the Lane  funds The Yorkshire Live Music Project CIC, of which the shop is a trading arm. YLMP provides financial support for youth music in Yorkshire. (The Yorkshire Live Music Project CIC, reg England no. 09160989)
