We are delighted to report that over 750 copies of this latest edition (2012) have been sold, raising over £1600.

The previous edition of 2003 arose from the analysis of a village questionaire that was circulated to all Buckland residents in 2002. The questionaire attracted a 85% return and half the respondents said they would welcome leaflets of local walks, and over two-thirds said they would appreciate maps of local footpaths. The Parish Council led the publication with a team including Jim Docking, Joan Gregory, John Lane and Duncan Ferns.
