The Marlow Historian is an occasional journal in which members of the Local History Group publish the results of their explorations into Marlow's past. Many pieces of research cover local subjects and events in far more detail than is otherwise available, and without this publication would remain unrecorded and ultimately unknown. Since 2000, seven editions have been published.
