Milton Keynes Heritage Association was formed in 1994 by a number of local heritage groups and museums, with the aim of encouraging and developing co-operation between organisations having an interest in heritage in Milton Keynes, north Buckinghamshire and south Northamptonshire


MKHA has around 70 organisation and individual members, with a broad range of interests and a wide geographical coverage from Buckingham in the west, Olney in the east, Towcester in the north and Woburn in the south.

Many MKHA members have websites for those interested in our heritage.
