The history of the local pubs and their associated breweries is a common subject of interest in a town or village.
The Society had a project to investigate and record local pub buildings. The records and template worksheets are available on this site. These could very useful to anyone carrying out a similar exercise in your locality.
The next BAS lecture – open to all and at no charge – will be on Saturday 9th at 2.30pm in the Bucks County Museum HP20 2QP. Julian Hunt will now talk on How Woughton kept its Green: the story of the ancient village green at Woughton on the Green which survived Parliamentary enclosure, the construction of the Grand Junction Canal and the creation of the New City of Milton Keynes. This talk is a prelude to a proposed BAS summer visit to Woughton when we will inspect the house platforms, sunken lanes and ridge and furrow in and around the Green as well as visiting the church and the remaining timber-framed farmhouses.
