Buckinghamshire's historic towns
The towns in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes are a defining part of our landscape. They represent our community and embody our county's history.
We have completed a project surveying 30 settlements in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes. This project has helped us to better understand the evolution of our towns. The project, funded by Historic England, has produced illustrated reports for each town. It also includes a popular publication summarising the key findings.
