DURING the holidays some members took part in the Calleva walk and others enjoyed a day out at Blenheim Palace so now we need to plan for the next year.

On returning from Blenheim, many of us dashed to Highlands Farm to view the plans for the site and were very shocked by what was presented.

It was the usual box houses with four bedrooms and a garage but what was especially amazing, considering we had been told that it was to be a “Hambledenesque” village, was the block of flats at the entrance to the development, replacing the historic barn, stable and farmhouse.

We certainly hope that Crest Nicholson take notice of our comments and return with a much-improved plan.

Our next lecture will be on January 3 when Professor Richard Fortey, an expert on ancient life, will be talking about Lambridge Wood.

On February 7, Jill Eyres will talk about “Life and death in a Roman villa: the story of Yewden, Hambleden Valley”.

Lectures are held in King’s Arms Barn at 7.45pm. All welcome, entry for non-members £3. For more information, visit www.henley-on-thamesarchaeologicaland
