Lockdown Book Shop
48 High Street, HR5 3BJ
Saturday 10am to 5pm and Monday 10am to 4pm
Lockdown Books is an exciting new shop in Kington High Street stocking a range of titles covering politics, poetry, social and green issues, feminism and philosophy. They also have books based on, or set in, the local area and have a focus on Anglo-Welsh writing. Landscape and nature are also key themes. The owner, David Mullin, takes pride in selecting interesting titles which you might not have seen before.
Although this is not a gallery, one wall features a small amount of art, including David's archeologically inspired slip work ceramics and a few abstract landscape paintings by local artist Siwan Gillick. Siwan and Dave won the h.Art Emerging Artist bursary in 2018 and often show their work together. The art changes on a regular basis and sometimes features work by other artists.
