Just two books have been compiled and published by the Friends - 'Bricks & Water', and 'The Brasses and Monuments in St. Mary the Virgin Church, Clapham'.

The latter was written by Robert Hutchison F.S.A., but both were typeset, styled, illustrated and published by our charity.

Bricks & Water has without doubt been the foremost fund-raiser of all our ventures, thanks to the generosity of Brian Bedson, who printed the book at no charge to The Friends.

It also serves as a lasting archive of photos and stories, as told by the villagers, covering the last 100 years of the 20th century.
