In 1998 Noel Parry wrote The Light On The Hill to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lapford Congregational Chapel. The book also covers something of the village’s earlier non-conformist roots dating back to the eighteenth century.

Noel, who died in March 2023, was a former headmaster of Lapford school, a talented village historian and a much-loved member of the chapel. At a service to celebrate his life, both the chapel and it’s adjoining hall were, quite fittingly, full.

The book is now 25 years old. It is reproduced here, with Noel’s permission and in his memory, for a new generation to enjoy.
