The Society focuses on all aspects of the historic county, working to protect and record our heritage and historic environment. Historic buildings and ancient churches, documentary research and the landscapes of the past, local history – as well as archaeology and fieldwork – all are within our remit. We are just as concerned about the present as the past: our members are active in monitoring the impact that the HS2 and East-West Rail projects are having on the county’s historic buildings and landscapes. We were formed in 1848, over 170 years ago, our collection is curated with the County Council collection in the Discover Bucks Museum, Aylesbury [an historic building in shared ownership between the Society and the Council] and at the Buckinghamshire Archives (see LINKS menu above). County heritage data can also be accessed via the Bucks Heritage Portal (see LINKS menu). For details of how to join the Society, visit our membership page.
The village of Stewkley has a very fine example of a Norman church, keeping its primary architecture through 900 years of change. A ticketed illustrated talk as part of church fund raising is scheduled for Friday 15 March at 7.30pm, including refreshments .
