Bourne End photo Burnend (first recorded 1236) "End of the Stream" is where the Wye flows into the Thames. Nestling in the Chilterns alongside the river, the village has been the home of papermakers, lacemakers and brickmakers. Today Bourne End is a thriving village close to London and even closer to the open countryside of the Chiltern Hills in central southern England.

A victorian christmas scene thumbnailSorry but you have missed this centreTalk For our last centreTalk of 2016 Catherine Grigg, curator at the Wycombe Museum, will talk on A Victorian Christmas. Christmas may go back over 2,000 years but a surprising number of the things we now do to celebrate a 'traditional Christmas' are Victorian in their origin. This talk examines exactly what the Victorians did for Christmas, from Christmas cards to carols, and toys and trees to turkey. Could even the desire for a white Christmas be a Victorian invention? Join us for this festive talk to find out what the Victorians did for Christmas and why.
