Belsize Park Belsize Bookshop  

Is there still a Belsize Bookshop at 193 Haverstock Hill? If so, is it still operated by Don Woodford? He's an old friend from almost 30 years ago. I'll be coming to London from Boston and I'd like to look him up if possible. Many thanks,
Robert Schoen

The old Belsize Bookshop closed down five or more years ago. Another bookshop has opened up on the site (Daunt Books), but the old owner is not involved in that store. It's possible that the new owners will be able to help track him down.

Hi Robert

It's not clear when you posted this question - may have been a long time ago! Anyway, sadly the Belsize Bookshop is long gone, now a branch of independent travel booksellers Richard Daunt. I worked at the BB in 1977-78 - my first job straight out of uni, and have many happy memories of the shop, and Don and Bob, and the wonderful (often very eccentric) customers. Sadly I have lost contact with Don so can't help further. I found your question because I Googled to see if I could trace him! Good luck in finding him.

Dear Robert, I don't know when you posted your query. I was Don's business partner for a time, but have completely lost touch with him, since about the turn of the century. If you or anybody else has news of him, I would welcome it.

Yours
