A TALK BY JULIAN HUNT, 1ST MARCH AT 2:30 PM

The landscape of North Buckinghamshire is full of ridge and furrow, the remains of common arable fields where each strip was cultivated by a different farmer according to strict rules of crop rotation. The feature is less well preserved in South Bucks, but Julian will show that the three field system was used in the Chilterns and the Thames Valley and will attempt to prove when it was introduced into England.

“Enjoyed our visit to this wonderful interactive museum where you are positively encouraged to touch things!”

“Visited Amersham museum yesterday – lovely place, provides many details on the history of the place. Plenty of cute cafes, pubs and shops around also… not difficult to find free parking nearby. ”

“A well-run, informative and interesting small museum on the main street. It’s mostly volunteer-run and they do a great job in keeping it and making you feel welcome…Check out the herb garden too.”

“Enjoyable film and television location guided walk around Amersham hosted by Amersham Museum – here are the Sun Houses on Highover Park and further up the hill is High & Over.”
