  • The High Wycombe Society was founded 40 years ago to bring together people who valued our town and wanted to prevent its deterioration in the face of the development pressures that had run rampant in the 1960s.

  • Although the bodies that manage the town - the Wycombe District Council and the Bucks County Council - are today far more mindful than their predecessors of so much that is of value in our historic town, the work of the High Wycombe Society continues. There is much still to do.

  • We hold five meetings a year. We run trips to places of local interest, and of course we hold fund-raising events. Members receive a quarterly newsletter, usually 12 pages long, packed with interesting articles and information. Much of our activity is focused on the work of the Society's groups.

  • We enjoy cordial relations with High Wycombe Museum (formerly the "Chair Museum") and several of our members serve there as volunteers. The museum and its staff are a mine of information about the history of the town and there are frequent fascinating exhibitions.

  • We are a registered charity and are members of ANTAS (the Association of North Thames Amenity Societies).

  • And, above all, we welcome new members, whether they are individuals or groups, whether they live in the town or in the surrounding countryside or far away.  Click here to find out more.
