The history of shops in Metfield since the early part of the twentieth century, including the takeover of Metfield Stores by a group of villagers on behalf of the community, is covered in a book written by local author Christine Brennan, METFIELD Tales From a Suffolk Village 1928–2017. Published in November 2017 and available from Metfield Stores and a number of other outlets, price £10.00.
