Sports in Buckingham:
If you are a Sports Club/Activity Organisation I would like to hear from you!

If this is something you would like to be part of please email me, the Lace Hill Sports and Community Centre Coordinator at:



Buckinghamshire Lace is a very fine pillow lace, and the making of it provided an income for local women until the First World War, especially here in Buckingham. Lace making is part of the Town’s industrial heritage.

A typical Buckinghamshire Lace motif is the ‘cucumber’, a short fat oval with a line of holes (to represent seeds) inside; the Mayor’s jabot, a decorative collar, has a strip of cucumber pattern lace. Very complex patterns might need as many as a hundred bead-weighted bobbins and these were often carved and decorated.

Town Councillors chose a mixture of names for the streets on Lace Hill– some tools, like Pillow, Bobbin, Linen, Silk, and some stitches, like Mayflower, Butterfly, Constance and Rosemary.

As for the name for the estate: Lace Hill is just for ease of reference. This does not need to form part of the postal address. The Town Council is grateful for the expert help of Kay Bradley, Kay Meadows and Helene Hill in compiling the list of possible street names.

Buckingham, a vibrant traditional market town, is located in the rural north of Buckinghamshire, UK. The town is built around the River Great Ouse which ambles its way through open parkland. There is a friendly shopping area with major high street shops and ones unique to the town. Come for a hot beverage or meal in our many cafes, bars and restaurants.

Sports Register 

Encouraging participation in sport and exercise for all ages and abilities is a key government priority with a view to improving both physical and mental health.

To support this initiative, Buckingham Town Council has decided to introduce a centralised register of exercise, activity, and sports clubs/organisations (both non-profitmaking and commercial) for both able bodied and disabled, providing our residents with their contact details/information. You can view the register here
