BAS Saturday Lecture

Saturday December 9th from 2:15pm:
Discovering Buckinghamshire Horse Mills

Speaker: Mike Farley (BAS VP)

The county’s  Horse mill lecturewind  and watermills have received much attention, but few are aware of the existence of the more ephemeral horse mills that are first recorded here in the  medieval period.  Mike will describe his own research on this interesting topic and hopes that research by others will bring further examples to light. 

This Lecture will be presented at 14:30 in the Learning Zone at Discover Bucks Museum (Aylesbury) and will be streamed from there.

Please come to the Discover Bucks Museum or Register now for the online lecture Here  (We will email the Zoom meeting invitation to you).

Historic documents cataloguing appeal raises £2,455

The society’s recent appeal for funds to complete the cataloguing of the BAS deeds collection of over 11,000 documents has raised £2,455 – and we will be able to add to this by reclaiming tax under the Gift Aid scheme.

So thanks are due to all who have donated. The fund will be sent to the Bucks Records Society, who are funding the work at Buckinghamshire Archive. The new catalogue will make the document collection accessible for research.
