As part of this years Chilterns Walking Festival, Martin Pounce will host this walk on Wednesday 21st and Saturday 31st October.

A poor king and rich commoners create a unique townscape in Amersham

No other medium sized town has a medieval street plan untouched by post 1800 development. A short woodland walk starting at Amersham station through the beech woods down to Amersham Old Town will explain how this came about: including a charter of King John and evidence of domination in the 18th century by the Drake family.

There will be a rare opportunity to see impressive memorials to this family in the Drake Chapel. The walk around the medieval street plan will finish outside Amersham Museum.

£5 adults (children free)
