About us

Our Aims

  • To promote the study of archaeology, architecture and history in Bletchley and district
  • To protect and preserve buildings, sites, records and objects of historic interest
  • To conduct and promote research into local history

Our History

In the 1960s the Society successfully campaigned for the preservation of Rectory Cottages, a rare secular example of a medieval hammer-beam roofed hall built c.1475.

In the 1990’s the Society worked to preserve Bletchley Park, where in World War II the Enigma codes were broken and the first programmable computer was created.
The Society has also transcribed and published various records of local interest.

Our Activities

The society organises monthly lectures, outings to places of interest and issues a newsletter. Occasionally we undertake a local history project or participate in a communal one. Several members are engaged in individual research and in building up a collection of slides of old photographs.

The monthly lectures are held in Rectory Cottages on the first Thursday of the month between March and June and then September to November. Visitors are very welcome to attend.


The Constitution of the Society was approved at the Annual General Meeting in May 2013.
