Save the Date! Thursday 3rd April

Have you finally stopped writing 2013 on cheques and hung up your 2014 calendar? Then please diarise Thursday 3rd April when a special event for tenants and locals in West Wycombe Village promises to inform and inspire. 

The National Trust is hosting a Heritage Open Day in the Church Rooms from 10:00am-4:00pm. All tenants are welcome to come along and see a presentation by the West Wycombe Village Historical Research Team. 

They've been a very busy bunch and will have much to share in the form of video and audio presentations with actual eye witness accounts from nearly a century ago.

  • You can learn about the arrival and closure of the West Wycombe Railway station, as well as its impact on village life. 
  • You can read and hold actual documents by the esteemed architect William Weir who redesigned West Wycombe Village in the 1930s. 
  • You can map out the spread of the village through a collection of historical West Wycombe Village maps (we've actually learned geography hasn't changed all that much!)

Come along, sit down for a cup of tea, put some audio head sets on and learn about your home. 

See you on April 3rd.
