Fancy a historic day out this summer?
13 April 2011

The society will be running four Saturday outings this summer – one each month in June, July, August and September. Two are guided walks in Buckinghamshire towns, open to all-comers and free.

The other two are coach trips: the first to Gainsborough’s house and other historic buildings in Suffolk, the second a guided ‘church crawl’ around some of the historic churches of north Bucks.

For full details, including dates and starting points for each outing, visit the BAS Summer Outings page.

JCT archives catalogue now on-line
13 April 2011

WHEN John Gordon Chenevix Trench died in 2004 he left his research archive as a bequest to the Bucks Archaeological Society – hundreds of working notes spanning several decades of historical research. Now the catalogue for the whole collection can be consulted on-line.

John Chenevix Trench was editor of Records of Buckinghamshire for seventeen years from 1980 to 1997. Between 1974 and 1995 he was also the author of eight major papers published in Records, including a definitive account of the County Museum buildings in Aylesbury.

During his researches, he accumulated notebooks, papers and drawings, transcriptions of medieval documents, family histories and drawings of historic timber-framed buildings. A great deal of his archive is on Coleshill and its historic timber-framed houses.

Now his archive has been catalogued, making it available for research by future historians. To access the catalogue, see the Archives Catalogue page.
