About Us

High Street Books is a real, independent book and record shop and mail order business set in the heart of New Mills in the High Peak of Derbyshire, in plain sight of Kinder Scout.

Established for over 30 years the current regime started in 2010. We’ve got a whole bunch of nice stuff, books, records, CDs, comics, maps, cards…

Some of the stock that’s not here as yet can be seen at our other stores:


… and if it’s in none of those give us a call or send us an email and we’ll see if we can track it down.

Secure Shopping

It’s all safe, we don’t keep any records of card numbers or pass any details of any sort to anyone. There’s laws about that sort of thing.

International Shipping

We’ll ship to anywhere with a postal service.

Details will be on the checkout screen. Get in touch if it’s too confusing, you’ve got any special requirements or it’s being a nuisance.

Shipping and Returns

Please contact us if there’s any problem with an order, or if it’s within fourteen days of receiving the item and you wish to return for any reason.
