Bucks Local History Network Conference Saturday 24th October (provisional date)

Plans for the 2020 Bucks Local History Network Conference were well advanced before the current ban on ‘gatherings’ as a result of the Corvid-19 epidemic. This year’s subject will be Shopping in Buckinghamshire – from medieval market places to modern retail parks.  With October still five months away and the restrictions easing there is still a chance that the conference may go ahead in the normal way. So you might like to put the date – Saturday 24 October – in your diary:

In the meantime you may be interested to hear that the Bucks Archaeological Society has started a series of on-line talks and presentations on history and archaeology which are accessible from home by anyone who has an up-to-date desktop computer, laptop, tablet or even smartphone. This Saturday, 23 May, starting at 2.30pm, Sarah Gray will present:

Market Town to County Town: images of Victorian Aylesbury: A review of photographs and images that show Victorian life in Aylesbury.
