Your bookshop is more than the sum of its words...

Sawbridge Words is a small bookshop about three-quarters of the way down Bell Street. We are well away from the hustle of the main road at number 47, just opposite the Café of the Angels.


We try to reflect the many interests of residents of Sawbridgeworth and regularly hold events featuring local authors. These have proved very popular and we are planning a further sequence in the near future.
