This book is available from several local sources, including local libraries. Published
by the Oxhey Village Environmental Group (OVEG), it contains photographs, maps and
illustrations of the area.
A few copies of “Parish Pages S. Matthew with S. Francis” have survived from the
1960s. These old parish magazines have been scanned and are available as Adobe PDF
files. They provide a fascinating insight into the days when St Matthew’s had a daughter
church in Oxhey Hall. The advertisements for local shops and businesses evoke a different
age. The cover (left) from the February 1965 issue, shows a craftman working at The
Whitefriars Stained Glass Studios, probably at the nearby factory in Weadstone.
