The Bosworth Library

The Bosworth Library

Below is a full list of the books generously donated to us by David and Linda Bosworth. They are available for loan at evening meetings or at daytime walks with a prior email to Gill asking her to bring a particular book.

I have put them into sections to catalogue them. I have included the author when not a multi author book.
Also included is date of publication, especially when the book is an older one, as this can be relevant.
