CANCELLED – A Poor King and Rich Commoners made Amersham

May 21, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


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 old Amersham 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.
