North Bucks Branch Archive Project

Main Branch site:

Branch site

The Branch web site contains up to date information about ringing in North Bucks. Much of the information formerly in this site can now be found there.


Latest on this site:

Web development - Jan 2021

A long needed review of table names in the dataase has prompted a complete check of the code behind this site. You probably won't see much difference, except in a few places where HTML5 coding has been introduced.

The Flash mp3 player in the tower and bell pages has been replaced with the HTML5 audio player..


For Little Horwood:

More detail from the Central Bucks towers that were formerly part of North Bucks are being included.

In the News

Local newspapers, ringing newspapers, parish magazines and many other sources are combined here to provide a detailed account of the history of the branch

This is an ongoing project to capture and present as much information as possible.
