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 Dormer Ascott House gardens and the Rothschild Ascott House, there is plenty to see.

Over the last 3 years the Group has been digging in the village and surrounding area as well as putting on exhibitions for residents and friends of the Group on Wing in WWI and WWII.

In 2015 we created three new committees, Archaeology, History and Family History. These have worked really well and we have achieved lots more than usual!

We are currently looking for test pits next year. If you are interested in finding out how your house history fits into the bigger picture then please contact us!

Wing Heritage Group is currently working with: Buckinghamshire Archaeological Society and Leighton Buzzard & District Archaeological and Historical Society.

      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!

    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.
