WH VEDay 2To celebrate the end of the war in Europe, the children from Winchmore Hill and surrounding villages, including some evacuees, were given a special tea made by the ladies in the photo on the left.  (From left to right: Mrs Smith, Mrs Bilby, Mrs major, Mrs Sears, Mrs Appleby, Mrs Brackley, Mrs Hext and Mrs Appleby – with Mr Appleby standing behind.)

“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.”
