Half page logo 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 of the questions about the village, with the help of members of the local and surrounding communities. We run a History Group, Archaeology digs and Family History. We are run on a volunteer basis and are always looking for people who would like to get involved.

    • 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!

  3. This is a most interesting and well designed website. Well done to the Wing Heritage Group. I love history and archaeology and therefore would be more than willing to help in any future digging activities.
