The Risborough Countryside Group offers a programme of local history and wildlife talks at the Community Centre from October to May plus guided countryside walks throughout the year exploring local heritage and wildlife. We present the annual Risborough Festival Heritage and Countryside exhibition each July in partnership with PRAHS and many members are actively involved in voluntary conservation work on local reserves. Our thriving archaeology section delivers a wide ranging programme of practical archaeology ranging from field walking and surveying to site excavation, using the latest technology that is telling us so much about our local landscape and particularly the imprint of prehistoric peoples and the Romans.
