Built in the 19th century, Oddfellows hall has played a major role in the community. Over the years it has been used as a cinema, dance hall, soup kitchen, girl guides hall and a dining hall for schoolchildren. When the Oddfellows started they were a union for people with unusual jobs. Before the NHS and sick pay it was a way for workers and families to get insurance that would support them if they fell on hard times and were unable to work.
This part of Buckingham is one of the oldest and the short seeming doors on the street opposite Oddfellows show how much the street level has risen since the houses were originally built.
