BANSTEAD WAR MEMORIAL - 100 Years documents the complete history of the memorial starting from the designing by a renowned Arts and Crafts architect, unveiling, and adding of more names over the years. Photos of about half the 119 men listed are included along with a few lines about each man's service. Many lived in roads we are all very familiar with. Read about how the Memorial came close to destruction in WWII and how it was moved in 1996. The book is full of photographs depicting the development of the surrounding area, from the earliest in 1897 to the present day.

BANSTEAD URCHINS is a collection of humorous tales about a group of mischievous boys growing up in the 1950s. Their stomping grounds were derelict sites within a short distance of the well and their escapades are recounted in such comic detail that they could only have been written by someone who was there. The most entertaining book in our collection.

For these and many others, visit our sales site here. (Free p&p)
