Nestled on the high street of Kirkham is Book, Bean and Ice Cream, a thriving independent café and boutique book and gift shop.
A favourite with locals and visitors alike, the shop is the passion of proprietor Elaine Silverwood. The store has a range of collectible and signed editions, many of which are available online so as well as browsing here on bookshop.org do explore the shop's own website.
Elaine has been awarded Independent Bookshop of the Year and in addition to running Book, Bean and Ice Cream, she regularly hosts special events with authors and personalities through her business Silverwood Events. To find out what is coming up, keep your eye on her website and Facebook page.
