Since moving to Stony Stratford in Milton Keynes on my retirement at the end of March, two of us have enjoyed visiting many churches and church buildings in the Milton Keynes area, and I have been writing about them and photographing them.

As the weeks move on and turn to months, the number of churches and church sites I have visited in Milton Keynes and throughout Buckinghamshire continues to grow, so it may be difficult for some to find these postings on this site.

This posting offers links to these and similar postings.

As I write about more churches and religious buildings, I intend to update this guide to my postings, indicating the date of the latest update at the end of this page, and to provide a link in the toolbar in the banner at the top of the front page of this site.
