Survey day in Great Horwood
19 September 2011
The highlight of the BAS Historic Buildings Group’s new Autumn programme will be a one-day survey in October of the village of Great Horwood, which dates from before the Norman Conquest of 1066.
The programme also includes an update on all the group’s projects – including the HS2 historic impact assessment – in September, and a visit to the newly restored Stowe New Inn in November.

HS2 high-speed rail Historic Impact Assessment – first reports now on-line
11 July 2011
The first survey reports of the society’s HS2 HISTORIC IMPACT ASSESSMENT PROJECT are now accessible on-line through this website. Follow this link for The HS2 Project page.
Around 20 members of the society have contributed to the project so far, taking part in:
• A survey day in Twyford in April, covering the church and old cottages along the village streets.
• Surveys in May of Portway Farm, St Mary’s House and nearby earthworks, which are closest to the planned line of HS2 where it passes Twyford.
• An impact assessment at Chetwode in June, which took in four listed houses and three moated sites.
• A visit to Potter Row, near Great Missenden, whose mix of earthworks, medieval farms and more modern architectural houses make it a paradigm for the Chilterns ass a whole.
• A progress meeting in Aylesbury in June which discussed the overall impact of HS2 on the historic landscapes of Buckinghamshire.
Now the first results of this work is being made available on-line, including 8 pages summarising the work done by BAS members and three of the final reports to be submitted to the HS2 Consultation. Other reports will be added as they are completed.
