Upgrade to include sparkling wine and smoked salmon on arrival for £40 per person. Dates are filling up fast, so call 01296 585 022 now to book your party in.
A book that is both well-written and beautifully illustrated, is the guide to the fascinating story of woodland history in the Chilterns, and what all the mysterious hollows and banks to be found there actually mean. Lots of photos show the great variety of historic features to be found.
There is a wealth of information for both the interested layman and the professional wanting more technical detail, with useful bibliography and list of relevant websites.
The Cultural Heritage of Chiltern Woods is written by John Morris, director of Chiltern Woodlands Project and an expert on the subject.
