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:

Built in the 1600s by the poet and MP Edmund Waller, Hall Barn is an impressive and extensive estate in Beaconsfield.
Nowadays, it is most likely to be seen during its summer open-air Shakespeare season, or as a location in various films and Midsomer Murders.
