Buckinghamshire Local History Network (BLHN)

Formed in 2000, the objective of the Bucks Local History Network is to link together the various local societies within the Historic County of Buckinghamshire.

Each year members of various societies and others interested in the history of the county gather at the BLHN Annual Conference and Fair. This is held each year on a Saturday at the end of September or the beginning of October. Its format varies but the fair usually includes displays by 20 or more societies and there are lectures from expert historians and archaeologists.
