A bookshop for Malmesbury

WHEN we were researching Deepest Wiltshire, we were surprised to find that Malmesbury had no shops selling books.  Now Amanda Willis has filled that yawning gap, opening Barn Owl Books on 4th August 2023.

A retired nursery educator and avid reader, Amanda is used to a home with bulging, sagging bookshelves. Over meny years her husband has commented that she has enough books to start a shop. So she did!

Based in Oxford Street, right in the centre of this beautiful and historic town, Barn Owl Books is crammed with reading matter for all ages and tastes – and we are delighted that Deepest Wiltshire on her shelves.  Go along and browse through her extensive stock and chat to her about your reading needs.
