Book End is located right by the 700-year-old stone bridge in Bakewell, Derbyshire. The bookstore itself started as a family run business - a collaboration of a mother and a daughter, partners and managers, Ellie Potten and Lynne Wilson.
The history behind Book End is not as happy as the final outcome. Ellie unfortunately had to leave university due to health problems and it is during that period that both her and her mom discovered that they wanted a change, a new start so they took the plunge in April 09 and signed the lease at Bridge House, a well-known historical building in Bakewell. A decade later, Ellie no longer owns the store.

Today, Book End Book operates in order to raise funds for Bakewell and Eyam Community Transport.  All books are donated. Wide cross section of fiction and non fiction. As well as second-hand books of all genres, there is a stock of new goods including: cards, gift wrap, There are also greetings cards. This second hand book shop is run primarily by volunteers who are friendly and helpful.
