Bucks Local History Network Conference

Buckinghamshire Local History Network 2019

ANNUAL CONFERENCE AND FAIR

BUCKINGHAMSHIRE SOCIAL HOUSING
– FROM ALMSHOUSES TO RIGHT-TO-BUY

A one-day conference on the changing face of housing for the people: cottages on manorial estates, the 18th-century workhouse that provided work, the 19th-century workhouse that enforced it, ‘Homes fit for Heroes’ that launched council-provided housing after the First World War, then the New Towns and Milton Keynes after the Second, and its dismantling through Right-to-Buy.

PLUS displays and bookstalls by the county’s local history and archaeology societies.

Saturday 5 October 2019

at The Oculus, the Aylesbury Vale District Council conference centre in Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury
