  • A treasure trove of historic information
    about our local shops and town centres

In September 2018 the High Wycombe Society received into its archives a donation of a collection of brochures for the auction of commercial properties. These are mostly in the centre of High Wycombe in the 1950s and through to the 1980s. Assembled in roughly chronological order, together they tell a potted history of our changing town.

These historic property auction details have all been scanned and added to the society's website, so clicking through the links on the website takes you to individual pages. Some brochures include maps showing every property on the streets at that time, while others include details of restrictive covenants set up years earlier.
