A Literary Trail

Launched today '20 miles in Nottinghamshire, A Literary Trail'


After Lowdham’s The Bookcase celebrated 20 years of trading, the idea for this 20 mile literary trail was born, as a way of raising money for the local charity Literacy Volunteers.

The book highlights some of our literary greats and their significant Notts’ venues. It can be purchased from The Bookcase for £5.99. Postage is £1.50.
