About Us

How we got started.....

JW Books run by Proprietor John Welch was originally run for forty years in Evesham, Worcestershire. Taken over by John in 2011 it was decided that the business need to be re-established and initially moved to Blackminster Business Park just outside of Evesham. Run from the site from 2013 to 2015 it was again decided in order to relocate the business it was moved to the newly developed Shopping Courtyard at Stratford Garden Centre, Clifford Chambers, Stratford upon Avon. 

The business prides itself on the finest quality second hand and antiquarian books with many first edition hardbacks in stock. We stock a large variety of subjects from history, military, cookery, biographies, fiction and much more. Plus especially for our new venue we have now started our 'Paperback corner' specialising in a variety of paperback fiction. We also offer a book search facility should you wish to find that particular book. Please feel free to take a browse of our online stock!
