A collection of historical and local information on the two parishes of Bures St Mary and Bures Hamlet from the late 1800`s to 2014

Within the three parishes of Bures St Mary, Bures Hamlet and Mount Bures, there are 116 Listed Buildings.

I hope you enjoy your visit, its aim is to view a selection of the finest buildings and structures of historic interest within the two parishes.
Hopefully this site will enlighten those, especially new to the village who may never have heard of the Tannery, Maltings, Cheese Factory, Gas Works, Workhouse, Victory Hall etc
