The History of Bucks Mills (History Sec. & Bideford Br.)
Fri. 8 September 2017 - Sat. 9 September 2017
A Study Event arranged by the History Section and Bideford Branch.
Bucks Mills is known as the village of a single surname and its history is inextricably linked with that of the Braund family. Very little of the settlement existed before the year 1800 and a full community reconstruction has been carried out.
There will also be an input from the DA Geology Section and Burton Art Gallery.
To book, contact either of the organisers.
