Milton Keynes Heritage Association – MKHA – was formed in 1994 by a number of local heritage groups and museums, with the aim of encouraging and developing co-operation and co-ordination between organisations having an interest in heritage in Milton Keynes, North Buckinghamshire and South Northamptonshire. It also has a central role in promoting heritage, by working closely with Councils and other agencies.
Since its foundation, MKHA has grown steadily in membership and influence. It now has around 40 member organisations, 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 Sands in the south. These organisations in turn represent several thousand individual members and volunteers. As a result of this growth, MKHA is now recognised as the main representative body of the heritage industry in the Milton Keynes area.
