January

Monday, 20th January 2020 7.45 – 9.45pm

Why I love the Chilterns. An illustrated talk by Richard Bradbury who has lived in and around the Chilterns virtually all his life. He has been editing the Chiltern Society’s quarterly publication, now called Chiltern, since 2007, and has also been heavily involved in the production of guidebooks on local walks. His extensive exploration of the region, often on foot, has deepened his appreciation of the riches it has to offer. In his talk he will seek to give you some insights as to why the Chilterns mean so much to him, using personal experiences and reflections, together with consideration of the qualities that make the region special. He will also draw on some of the many articles and images that have appeared in Chiltern and its predecessor Chiltern News.
Venue: Trinity United Reformed Church, London Road, High Wycombe, HP11 1BJ (opposite Pann Mill). Public car park at rear of building (free after 7pm). Admission £3 (including refreshments).
