Take our survey and help history come alive at The Bury


What would encourage you to visit a museum? What activities do you look for when planning a day out?

We want your views to help form our future plans for creating a museum and heritage centre at The Bury in Hemel Hempstead.

The Bury, a Grade II listed building, was erected in about 1790 by an attorney who worked in the town. It was owned by many notable people in the borough before we bought it in the 1940s and it became home to the town’s Register Office before these services relocated to the Forum in 2016.

The proposals are being developed in partnership with Dacorum Heritage Trust and museum associations from across the borough and will be submitted to the Heritage Lottery Fund for grant funding later this year. If successful, the Bury will be converted into a museum and heritage centre, where visitors will be able to learn stories from Dacorum’s past and enjoy new facilities including a café and family activities.

The survey is open until Sunday 20 May.
