Locally Important Sites

We are publishing each site we have investigated, as part of our Research and Recording Project. Our group is discovering wealth of information about each site.

Very basic details of many of these sites can be found on our sister organisation Parks & Gardens UK website, we will be adding our researches there in due course. As our research on each site is completed it will be added to the (alphabetical) list here; all the sites are followed by their local authority district designation for planning purposes.
AVDC – Aylesbury Vale District Council
ChDC – Chiltern District Council

MKC – Milton Keynes Council
SlBC – Slough Borough Council
SBDC – South Bucks District Council
WyDC – Wycombe District Council

Just click on the name of a site to download the .pdf file about it, to learn more about its part in the county’s history of parks, gardens and other designed landscapes. These research ‘dossiers’ are modelled on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens entries produced by Historic England to give parks, gardens and other designed landscapes protection within the planning process.

We are currently researching these sites:
Aylesbury Museum,
 Bekonscot, Bulstrode, Danesfield, Gayhurst, Medmenham, Peterley Manor, and Shardeloes with more in the pipeline…

Some of these are Registered sites already, but we are re-looking at them as part of the Repton 200 festival in 2018.

Again, as with Historic England Registered properties, a sites appearance here does not imply that they are open to the public. Please check the usual sources, Yellow Book (NGS)Red CrossThames Valley Air Ambulance etc for possible openings.
