Scarthin Books is falling down

Alarming news from Cromford and the BBC:
A bookshop once named as one of the best in the world could fall down unless £10,000 can be raised for structural repairs, say its owners. 
Four steel columns need to be installed at Scarthin Books, in Cromford, Derbyshire, to support the weight of about 100,000 books over four floors.
Scarthin Books (seen here across Cromford Pool - it's the shop with the awnings next to the chapel) is crowdfunding money for the work via its website.

Not only is it one of my favourite bookshops, it was due to play an important part in my plan to move the Lords and Commons to Arkwright's Mill in Cromford.
