Michael Moon

19 Lowther Street Whitehaven CA28 7AL

With independent bookshops dying a slow death in Britain, you have to salute the survivors, so all power to the long-serving Michael Moon in Whitehaven, who runs a highly individual secondhand bookshop, packed to the rafters with books on every conceivable subject. It’s particularly good on Cumbria and the Lakes, so if you’re searching out old walking guides or antiquarian collectors’ items, this is the place to start looking.
