Caxton Books & Gallery, owned by Judith Charlesworth and Sally Johnson, is a well-established independent bookshop in the heart of Frinton’s renowned Connaught Avenue, just a stone’s throw from the sweeping sands of Frinton Beach. The Gallery exhibits local and East Anglian artwork, ceramics and jewellery. We also have an exciting range of artistic greetings cards and other book-related products.

our Book of the month

‘The word “mesmerising” is frequently applied to memoirs, but seldom as deservedly as in the case of Girl With Dove’ Financial Times

‘Reading is a form of escape and an avid reader is an escape artist…’ Brilliantly original, funny and clever Honor Clark, Spectator, Book of the Year

Growing up in a dilapidated house by the sea where men were forbidden, Sally’s childhood world was filled with mystery and intrigue. Hippies trailed through the kitchen looking for God – their leader was Aunt Di, who ruled the house with charismatic force. When Sally’s baby brother vanishes from his pram, she becomes suspicious of the activities going on around her. What happened to Baby David and the woman called Poor Sue? And where did all the people singing and wailing prayers in the front room suddenly go?
