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 of the questions about the village, with the help of members of the local and surrounding communities.

We are doing two walks again this year. The first will be on Sunday June 7 to Wing Airfield. Meet at 2pm outside All Saints’ Church, Wing. It is a two hour walk so please wear suitable footwear and bring a drink. We will be walking through fields so hayfever sufferers remember to dose up before you go!
VE Day exhibition
We had the official map of the airfield, details of the Martin Baker crash, the competitions the crews entered, stories from those based at Wing, the Chelsea Pensioners, evacuees, POW homecoming and much more! The display will be up in the church for the next few days, so pop in and have a look if you missed it.
We are also looking at new projects for next year, so if you have any ideas please email firstname.lastname@example.org
