Hedgerley Village Survey – now writing up
9 December 2011

Five listed buildings in Hedgerley have now been fully surveyed by members of the BAS Historic Buildings Group – and tree-ring dating techniques have shown that one was built during the two years following 1485. That's the year when Richard III was defeated at the Battle of Bosworth Field.

The project has now reached the writing-up stage. The first report, on Shell House, has been submitted for possible publication in Records of Buckinghamshire. Summaries of the survey findings for each of the five buildings are now on this website.
