National Trust property Glendurgan Garden, near Falmouth, is appealing for donations of second hand books following the huge success of its book nook in the fish cellar in Durgan village this summer.

With National Read a Book Day held recently and book shops bringing in much needed income to the charity, the Glendurgan team is thankful to the group of volunteers looking after the unique fish cellar.

Katie Reynolds, visitor experience officer, said: "We’re delighted that the book nook in Durgan fish cellar has been so positively received over the summer and is helping to raise funds for our vital conservation work at Glendurgan. Any donations are gratefully accepted, especially children’s books which have been hugely popular."

The cellar offers a warm and inviting space for visitors to relax and discover more about Durgan’s history during the autumnal months.

All funds raised from second hand books go towards the restoration of Glendurgan’s 190 year-old historic cherry laurel hedge maze.

If you have any books that you would like to donate to Glendurgan’s book nook, you can contact the property by phoning 01326 252020 or email

Glendurgan is open from Tuesdays to Sundays, 10.30am to 5.30pm and Durgan Fish Cellar is open from Tuesdays to Sundays, 11am to 4.30pm.
