 Úht-wæcce: an Anglo-Saxon phrase. Click on the arrow to read more about our motto...

Perceptions of the past change over time, and reflect their era. The 19th century statue of Alfred the Great in Wantage tells us as much about Victorian politics and social structure as Anglo-Saxon Wessex.

We’re a not-for-profit enterprise, trading for social and environmental purposes

Uffington Heritage Watch Limited is registered (no. 7060) with the Financial Conduct Authority, under the Co-operatives and Community Benefit Societies Act, 2014.

How we are set up

Uffington Heritage Watch Limited is a community benefit society, registered in December 2014 with the Financial Conduct Authority.

We are organised according to a co-operative business model. Proceeds from the enterprise will be reinvested into furthering our social and environmental mission to protect and promote understanding of heritage in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, and Wiltshire.

We are democratically controlled. Members have one vote, regardless of whether they hold more than the one (£1) share that they purchase on joining.

The members elect Officers annually at the Society AGM.

We aim to identify, investigate, and conserve tangible and intangible heritage in the community, in line with the published implementation guidelines of the European Landscape Convention  and the Valletta Convention on the protection of archaeological heritage, and with the ethical principles of the 2003 UNESCO convention.
