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.
19th July 2014 we will be holding a full trench dig in Jubilee Green as part of the Carnival and also the Festival of Archaeology 2014. This will give people the opportunity to see a proper dig, get involved in the digging, finds washing and talk to our archaeologists. There will also be a display of our work over the last year and what we are planning in the future.
Wing Heritage Group is currently working with: Buckinghamshire Archaeological Society and Leighton Buzzard & District Archaeological and Historical Society.
