Aardvark Books » Eat. Sleep. Live. Herefordshire

To help protect the public from the hazards of negotiating wobbly stacks of books, and the dust of the warehouse, Edward and Sheridan rented The Reading Room, a former artist's studio, to accommodate the children's and specialist Art books, and a record player to play some of Sheridan's collection of jazz records. People continued to find Aardvark Books, not only local people but also many visitors, including (once) a party of re-enactors passing by. Because the Aardvarks were still falling over books which overflowed from the shelves, they realised in 2006 that they would have to find new premises, and in 2007 they moved to their existing premises in a beautiful 19th century barn on the borders of Herefordshire, Shropshire and Wales, the building known as the Bookery.
