Welcome to the Wing Heritage Group Website

Wing in Buckinghamshire has some of the oldest archaeological remains in the county. With the Saxon cemetery and Church, the “Castle Mound” the original Ascott House gardens and the Rothschild Ascott House, there is plenty to see. But a lot of the history of the village still remains undiscovered or not properly investigated. The Heritage Group aims to answer some the questions about the village, with the help of Wing’s local community and anyone else who is interested in the area.

As part of the WW1 Commemorations the Heritage Group is running a Knit a Poppy Appeal. For more details here poppy.

    1. Hi

      Yes we are aware that they have moved in, it looks like they are going to be there for a while. We will be keeping a close eye on it as we are doing a test pit not far from there this weekend. So be interesting to see what they have come up with!
