BBHG meets the Braunds of Bucks

033

Members gather to learn about the history of Bucks Mills

Members managed to dodge the rain on Wednesday night as they were entertained by Chris Braund on a tour of Bucks Mills. We heard the stories of past inhabitants of the village and inspected the damage wrought by February’s storms.

Many of the cottages were once inhabited by members of the Braund family but any connection with the Spanish Armada is a myth, despite the information given on the interpretation boards! We enjoyed an ice cream at the bottom of the village before heading for home.
