We can make a real difference…

The Chiltern Society Heritage Group has been created to provide exciting opportunities for those who have an interest in the wellbeing of the heritage and history of the Chilterns. The group will identify and develop projects that aim to inform, champion and as required, campaign to protect the history and heritage of the local area.

Current projects

The Chiltern Society Heritage Group will be ‘project based’, working at any time on a small variety of projects.

The history of The Ridgeway

Current projects include researching the history of The Ridgeway to tell the story of how this ancient pathway has shaped our landscape and communities through the ages.

Preservation of local pubs

For hundreds of years pubs have been at the centre of British social life and a key part of our cultural heritage. With British pubs closing at an alarming rate – approximately 27 pubs a week according to CAMRA – we want to play a part in their preservation.

Future projects

Possible projects in the future might investigate the history of local industrial buildings, churches and farm buildings. Other potential large projects include cooperation with the Chilterns Conservation Board on the Hillforts Project.

Get involved…

Membership of the Heritage Group is open to all members of the Society and by invitation to representatives drawn from external organisations with whom the CSHG wishes to work closely. All those interested in suggesting a possible project, supporting the activities of the new Group and steering its direction and priorities, whatever your interest, do get in touch.
