The aim of the Society is the preservation and study of all matters relating to the history and development of Stoke Poges; to collate and preserve archive material and artefacts, and to make it available for members and other interested parties.
The Society holds about six events a year, including talks, visits, members’ evenings, and it is most keen to encourage members to research their own family, or road, or any other aspect of the Village that interests them, and share their findings with other members of the Society. (Click here for programme.) It will make available archive material to members. It also helps people around the world searching for family connections in the Village.
Our next event:
The Queen's Walkway
Tuesday 19 March 2019, 2:30pm
Self-guided walk with an afternoon tea.
This walking route (in place since September 2015 to mark the occasion of The Queen becoming Britain's longest reigning monarch) was opened by The Queen on her 90th birthday, 21 April 2016. The information panel she unveiled is located at the foot of Castle Hill.
The Queen's Walkway is a symbolic 6.373km long for the 63 years, 7 months and 3 days (one day more than Queen Victoria's reign) and links 63 of Windsor's best attractions, features and views.
At 2:30pm we will meet at the Queen Victoria Statue outside the castle. We will then follow a shortened version of the walk visiting about 20 of the listed places in the central Windsor area, ending at the River Street Car Park. There is then the option of an afternoon tea at a local venue.
