Arnold Baines

Arnold Baines, who died in March 2001 in his eighteeth year, was a dominant figure in the Buckinghamshire Architectural and Archaeological Society’s affairs, both as author and administrator. A full Obituary can be found in Records of Buckinghamshire, Vol 42, 2002. He was Chief Statistican at The Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food until he retired to become active as a County Council, Chesham Urban District Council and Chiltern District Council. His publications were by no means limited to the pages of Records of Buckinghamshire but in this journal the list was formidable (see below).

In his will he left the Society a legacy to be spent on some educational project. It has been with the assistance of this that this web site has been produced. We trust that its content would have met with his approval.
