Welcome to the homepage of the Buckley Society


The Buckley Society is a local society based in Flintshire North Wales, dedicated to promoting historical interest in the Buckley area. 

We collect and publish all available information and materials relating to Buckley and District in an annual magazine and arrange monthly talks at Hawkesbury Community Centre. A team of  members and volunteers also compile an archive on computer of photographs, documents and information of interest which is sold on disk.

Some work has been carried out to record memories of working in the various clay industries around the town and these are documented in the annual magazines, a subject index for which is contained within this site. 

DVD's have been produced of old images of the railway, the annual Jubilee, Bistre Emmannuel Church garden parties plus reminiscences of working life in a Buckley Pottery - see 'Publications' for more detail.

Our average annual membership is 75 and attendance numbers at meetings average around 60 members. 

We have many correspondents from around the globe who originate from the town, are descendants from Buckley families or have an interest in the town's heritage.

We welcome enquiries via e mail but ask enquirers to bear in mind that whilst we are happy to check our archives for names or information, we are not a family history society and cannot carry out family history research on behalf of enquirers.

We welcome information about Buckley and district and are always ready to welcome people who can deliver talks on local subjects.  

Please use the links on the left of this page to navigate around the site. There are also many links to other local sites of interest listed within these pages.
