WALK – A Poor King and Rich Commoners made Amersham

May 31 @ 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 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.

Meet outside Amersham railway station.

This walk is part of the 2022 Chilterns Walking Festival. Please book by clicking on this link to their website.
