Restricted Access to Collections
The Archives searchroom is now open again following flood damage. However, access to some collections is still limited, particularly parts of our collections of inclosure maps, wills, parish registers and motor vehicle licensing records. Please contact us on 01296 382587 or firstname.lastname@example.org before visiting.

To find new ways of bringing archives into the classroom, the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies is developing a series of PDF files which comprise scanned images of records, explanatory text and ideas for classroom use.

PDFs are available on:
