    We have just celebrated forty years in business in the Old Hall Bookshop. John and Lady Juliet Townsend opened the shop in July 1977 to sell second hand and antiquarian books, shortly afterwards they started selling new books too. At the party last week John was joined by two of his daughters and four of his grandchildren to toast the continuing success of the shop.


    Alice Townsend, Harry Bland, Eleanor Bland, Freddie Bland, Arthur Bland and John Townsend.
