Protecting heritage

A NEW group has been launched to promote the heritage of the Chilterns.

A NEW group has been launched to promote the heritage of the Chilterns.

Volunteers from the Chiltern Society will work on three projects:

• Helping the Campaign for Real Ale to save pubs from closing.

• Spreading awareness of important buildings in the Chilterns.

• Promoting the 47-mile stretch of the Ridgeway National Trail.



The group is supported by dozens of historical and archaeological groups in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Berkshire as well as the Chilterns Conservation Board, the Historic Houses Association and the Ridgeway Partnership.

Earl Howe, president of the society, said: “If anyone doubts why a group like this is needed they have only to think about some of the threats that loom over us in the Chilterns. Our heritage is very much about us.

“It tells us who we are and why we are what we are. It helps us to understand what has gone into making the present and what we need to ensure survives.”
