Winslow in 1556:
The manor of Winslow, including Granborough and Little Horwood, was surveyed in 1556, probably to maximise revenue for the Crown. After the dissolution of St Albans Abbey, Winslow had an absentee landlord who owed the Crown money.
Then the surveyor Thomas Gedge came to call.
This book paints a picture of Winslow in 1556: its people, its properties, their occupations, their families and relationships, their petty crimes and long-term feuds. Putting together the 1556 Survey with other historical documents – wills, inventories, parish registers, legal records – David Noy develops a panorama of Winslow's economic, social and religious life in the mid-16th century.
With the text of the Survey itself, translated and published here for the first time.

Last chance for Stoke Mandeville's
If the HS2 high-speed rail line goes ahead as planned – and the government says it will – then what remains of the Saxon and Norman village of Stoke Mandeville will be swept away by bulldozers. Because its route goes through the old church ruins and their quiet, deserted churchyard.
This pamphlet outlines what we know of the original Stoke Mandeville, and what will be lost if current plans go ahead unchanged. It sets out the evidence that this deserted village is in fact a site of national importance.
This is an appeal, not just for the protection of Stoke Mandeville's deserted village, but on behalf of all historic buildings and sites along the route of HS2 as it crosses Buckinghamshire from end to end.
