About Us


Bailgate Books Ltd is a small family business owned and run by Kathryn Dalton and Nick Wollaston. We were both previously chartered civil engineers and started the career change to being booksellers more than ten years ago. Since then we have had market stalls, a "bricks and mortar" shop and have been selling on-line since 1992. We have now concentrated our book-selling efforts in the on-line sector but welcome potential buyers to view our books with prior notice.


Nick is our beekeeper.  He has been looking after bees for as long as he can remember, firstly with his father Raymond who started bee-keeping in the 1950s and later with our own bees in Mattersey and in Lincolnshire. We still receive advice and words of wisdom from Raymond.


We are located in Mattersey in north Nottinghamshire, close to the borders with Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.  Please call us on 01777 816723 or e-mail us to arrange a time and date if you would like to visit us to view our books or taste our honey.
