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!
Our next meeting is the 4 September 2017, 8pm at The Cock Inn. Agenda to be posted up shortly.
The Family History Group has an open morning at Wing Library from 10.30 on the 2nd September 2017.
Wing Heritage Group is currently working with: Buckinghamshire Archaeological Society and Leighton Buzzard & District Archaeological and Historical Society.
