Artworks reflecting sites of local heritage go on display in Buckingham Library.

The first picture, by Henry Rice, is of Thornton Bridge, which was nominated by the Buckingham Canal Trust, and the second, by Keziah Furini, is The History of the Maids Moreton Mound, which was nominated by the Maids Moreton Conservation Trust.

The artworks were unveiled by Bucks Council’s deputy cabinet member for planning and regeneration Gary Hall, at a ceremony attended by Lyn Robinson representing the Maids Moreton Conservation Trust and Terry Cavender representing the canal society.

Following the launch of the Bucks Local Heritage List project in 2021, members of the public nominated buildings, archaeological sites, parks and gardens as heritage assets important to local people and their communities.

The team decided to put forward one publicly nominated building, the Thornton Canal Bridge #18, and one publicly nominated archaeological site, the Maids Moreton Mound.

The artists collaborated closely with the groups that nominated the sites to produce the final artworks, which will remain on permanent display at Buckingham Library.
