19c Crown Street
Love the outdoors? Off on your hols? Or want waterproof socks for walking the dog? Whichever it is, Sue and Geoff have got you covered.
The history of this shop is as old as the hills, and today it’s a treasure trove of hiking and lifestyle clothing, top-quality outdoor footwear, plus essential kit for travel and camping.
A walker and cyclist herself, owner Sue has a talent for handpicking fantastic seasonal ranges from technical brands like Mountain Equipment as well as ones that are harder to find, like Vaude, Kühl and Skogstad.
Along with waterproof everything (it is England, after all), you’ll find base layers, backpacks and British-made trekking poles rubbing shoulders with camping gas, OS maps and even mosquito nets.
There are perfect gifts like socks and Buffs, or what about a bushcraft fire stick for the wild one in your life? Of course, there’s more to this shop than just great products and a handy ordering service.
Sue and Geoff are full of local knowledge and useful tips on everything from walking routes to why your boots are rubbing. In fact their passion for the outdoors is infectious. Don’t worry though; they sell first aid kits for that.
