7. Much Ado Books
A classic bookshop, "with books and chairs scattered throughout," according to Chris. "It has an emphasis on the Bloomsbury Group (their 'rural' centre was nearby), but many other sections too. Group events cover a variety of activities, and the shop is involved with local libraries, and several other organisations".
