The Society

The Hitcham and Taplow Society was formed in 1959 to protect Hitcham, Taplow and the surrounding area from overdevelopment and neglect.

Its main priorities are to preserve local heritage, keep an eye on local planning applications to protect the rural nature of the area, to encourage community spirit by publishing a twice-yearly Newsletter (given free to HTS members) and to run the Village Green Party each summer.

We are a non-party political organisation and we welcome all new members from across our local area.

We are affiliated to the following societies:

Association of North Thames Amenity Societies

The Chiltern Society
