5. Share what makes the Chilterns special
People who know the Chilterns quote these experiences amongst their favourite things:
"It’s the way the sunlight filters through beech leaves overarching country lanes. The sight and sound of a red kite, gently circling with its soft, whistling call. Timeless views from grassy hilltops, looking down on peaceful farmlands. A fragrant carpet of bluebells, stretching as far as the eye can see. The exhilaration of a cycle ride along a challenging woodland track. A village green, discovered suddenly down a quiet lane. The lazy luxury of a cool day on the river. Shop windows lighting up the dusk in a cosy market town. The glint of frost on bare, sculpted hedgerows. The warming glow of a delicious meal, served by the fireside in a country pub."
Add the interest of our man-made heritage — attractions which range from museums or windmills to vintage railways and lavish historic homes. We admire their treasures, love their nostalgia and enjoy their insight into famous characters or how things were made or used.
