AN “Italian” vista of poppies in a field near Woodcote and an ancient beech tree in Swyncombe are among the local scenes depicted in a new book on the Chilterns.
Landscape photographer Jon Scourse, from North Stoke, took more than 200 images of the area for his book, The Chilterns.
He said: “I have been a keen landscape photographer for the last 10 years and have always wanted to do something with it. Then I got into a conversation with a publisher who had always been very keen to do a book on the Chiltern Hills and asked if I would like to take that project on.” The area covered stretches from Goring to Dunstable, and includes many local scenes, such as rowers on the Thames at Henley, Stonor Park and photos of the now ubiquitous red kite.
The book is published by Halsgrove and is priced £16.99. A book launch including a glass of punch, dinner and music by Ken Fitt will take place at the Christ Church Centre on Friday, November 1 at 7pm. Tickets at £10 are available from the centre office on (01491) 577733 or email email@example.com
All profits will go to the Kempster Development Fund.
