The Best Booksale in All Methodism

(with thanks to Methodist Preacher for the text)

The grand book sale in Quinton starts today! 10,000 volumes!

The renowned Englesea Brook book sale in the West Midlands starts today and runs until next Saturday, except tomorrow Sunday. There will be 10,000 good quality second hand books on sale.

This is truly an exceptional event and draws in book lovers from all over the region. All proceeds go to support the excellent museum at Englesea Brook in Cheshire.

The museum attracted a rave review in theGuardian last year so you can be assure it is for a good cause commemorating both Methodist and working class history.

The venue is Quinton Methodist Church in Ridgeway Avenue, between Spies Lane and Halesowen Road. It is on the route of the 9, 140, 141, 202 and 636 bus routes and is opposite the Reel Cinema, Quinton. 
The post code is B62 9AU. There is a large (free) car park and the entrance to the sale is off the car park. It is right next to the M5 and equidistant between Junctions 2 and 3.

Opening hours are 10am to 5pm with late opening until 8pm on Thursday 

PS - it would be appreciated if other Methodist and local  bloggers would mention this sale 

P.S - Having attended previous years' sales i am very happy to repeat what a wonderful repository of books this is.  Discussions made clear what the shelves themselves tell - the booksale is recipient of many a methodist luminary and leaders book collection and just puts them all out for sale.  I am tempted to attend tomorrow...see you there?
