On Wednesday 1st July 2020, the home of the county records in Buckinghamshire, formerly known as the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies, changed its name to Buckinghamshire Archives.
Explaining the reason for the change Cllr Patrick Hogan, Cabinet Member for Culture at Buckinghamshire Council, said: ‘We have found the name ‘Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies’ didn’t have a lot of meaning for people who didn’t know what the centre was, or about the unique collections in our care. We feel that the new name makes what we have to offer much clearer to the public.
The move to the new unitary council earlier this year provided the perfect opportunity to work with our in-house communications team to change the branding and the signage of the service to Buckinghamshire Archives.
Sadly, Buckinghamshire Archives remains closed to in-person visits for the foreseeable future due to Covid-19. However, the team is still busy behind the scenes planning a virtual history festival for September, and is also open to enquiries via email, including family and house histories. Get in touch with the team by emailing [email protected].‘
