The name ‘Withywindle’ is from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. The Withywindle is a river that runs through the Old Forest of the Shire. As a huge Tolkien fan, Cynthia loved it as a name for the bookstore since we started out specializing in just Science Fiction and Fantasy.
Withywindle Books is a division of Withywindle Nature – Cynthia’s main project where she works as a professional naturalist and blogger. She also offers web design services.
