Margins Bookshop: Our base in the centre of Wetherby

What is Margins about?

Margins Bookshop is located at 2 Church Street in Wetherby. We offer second-hand books for sale as well as providing a place for people to drop in and chat, browse the books and bring in their own books for us to re-cycle.

We also hold occasional activities to help support and serve our community.

The shop is normally open from 10am to 2pm, Tuesday to Saturday. We are not open on Mondays.

Sunday worship still takes place at Deighton Gates School at 10.30am.

ArtSpace at Margins

Welcome return of Will Ellen

As well as selling second-hand books, we also provide space for local artists and photographers to display their work. This is free of charge, although we do levy a 10% charge on any sales.

The latest artist to grace the walls of Margins is Will Ellen, a 'local lad'.

Will has lived in Wetherby for most of his life. He depicts local scenes with a vivid and distinctive style. Usually very detailed, his oil-on-canvas paintings are inspired by the Yorkshire countryside - the hills, dales and moors - as well as by the architecture of iconic towns such as Whitby, Staithes and Knaresborough (see below). "My aim is to celebrate the beauty around us through my art", he says.

All the paintings or prints on display are available to purchase, alongside more affordable coasters and table mats based on Will's work. Opening times are 10am to 2pm, Tuesday to Saturday.
