Don’t let the shop sign fool you…this fine little bookshop also has an absolute gem of a Record Shop in it’s basement. Down the white stone steps you’ll find a wall full of music related books, and beyond that a well stock room full of Vinyl and CD. Most of the stock is second hand but they stock a few more recent pressings too. Classic rock and pop takes up a few racks but most genres are covered and there’s plenty of Indie, Punk, Prog, Jazz and Soul and eyes down for the Dance stuff and loads of 7″ singles at super affordable prices. They also have a big bargain section for those of you who like to dig for cheap and cheerful bargains.
All the stock is labelled helpfully with a description of the condition and a bit of info about each record which is great especially if you fancy taking a punt on something. There’s also a listening post – rejoice! The prices are very reasonable too, they don’t max everything up to Discogs asking price like so many shops these days. There’s a steady stream of new stock coming in all the time so I try and make a regular trip here and I’ve never left without clutching some goodies.
This is a lovely little shop, it’s bright and airy and the stuff dreams are made of (I’m not the only one who dreams about buying records right?). New Mills is a nice little Peak District town with lovely countryside around it and easily reached, having not one but two Railway stations (New Mills Central is nearest but you can also get there from New Mills Newtown in a brisk 10 min walk away).
