Buckland Church postcard in Robert H Clark series circa 1905

Buckland is a tiny village on Ermine Street, where it crosses the chalk uplands between Buntingford and Royston: the church is at the highest point away from the road. The nave and chancel date from about 1348; the tower, south aisle, porch and south door from the 1400s. There is some enjoyable mediaeval stone carving in corbels flanking the windows, also mediaeval glass, 15th century brasses, memorials from later years and a medley of 19th century fittings.

It is now maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust

BUCKLAND, a parish in the hundred of Edwinstree, county of Hertford, 2 miles (W.S.W.) from Barkway, containing 343 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry of Middlesex, and diocese of London, rated in the king's books at 20, and in the patronage of the Provost and Fellows of King's College, Cambridge. The church is dedicated to St Andrew.

Postcard of Chipping (circa 1905?) in Robert H Clark series

Buckland (7 miles N.) is crossed by the Roman road of Ermine Street on which stand both the village of Buckland and the hamlet of Chipping. The parish church was erected in 1348 but has a font of Barnack stone which is possibly 900 years old. Fragments of 14th century glass remain in some of the windows of this church.
