Buckland Parish Archive

Avril and the late Ray Poole spent many years lovingly putting together material which now forms the Buckland Archive.  This consists of a wealth of information about the history of our Parish.  The Archive, consisting of over 90 files, is housed in the Parish Council office at the Hall.

In 2006 Avril and Ray produced a book to mark the Millennium, which drew on all the material they had gathered over the years, including the recollections of villagers past and present over that period.  As Avril and Ray state in the forward to their book:

‘The village and Parish of Buckland must have remained essentially the same for a long period of time and it is only in the last hundred years or so that we see dramatic changes.  Before that it was a rural community whose activities must have been created by the seasons’.

There is a host of information available in this Archive, and we thank Avril and Ray for all their hard work over many years.  It is a treasure and heirloom for future generations to enjoy.
