As part of its Archive, the Group collects books and other printed material relating to, or containing reference to, the village and Parish of Marldon.
Since our formation in September 2001, we have collected, through donation and purchase, a large collection of old and new books with a Marldon connection, together with other books of more general South Devon interest.
The Group is happy to make any book in its collection available for borrowing by Members of the Group,and below is a list, with brief comments where appropriate.
