Local History

History 1Meeting monthly the aim of this friendly group is to learn more about the area in which we live, its’ diversity, its’ history and its’ beauty.
At our members annual meeting we decide on our programme and arrange for guides to take us around our chosen venues. During the winter months we broaden our interest a little by having talks not only on historic houses and events, but also on people who have been associated with the area.  Very occasionally we go wider afield and visit historic sites in London.  Our full membership is kept to 30 with 20 on guided walks so that we can hear the speaker. However, we do have a waiting list and those on this list are welcome to indicate their interest in any particular meeting should space be available.

During the Covid crisis, the Local History Group is planning a number of monthly Zoom meetings on the fourth Thursday of the month. They will be mainly in the morning but do check our communication.

Buckingham Railway Centre past, present and future. It will be presented by Cyril Parsons on 22nd July at 10.30 a.m.
This will be the sixth in our monthly Zoom meetings. We are hoping for a walk in August, details not yet decided.
Local History members will be emailed the Zoom contact nearer the time.
General members of our u3a are welcome to join the Zoom meeting and should email Simon Reeks for a link.
