Amersham Town Walk (ref 16)

Sunday 01 Oct ~ 2:30 PM

This circular walk in Amersham Old Town will give you a fascinating insight into the lives of people in the past and the places where they lived and worked. The walk will leave from outside the entrance to the museum and it takes in Amersham High Street, the Memorial Gardens, Church Street, School Lane and the Meadow and then back up the High Street, the Platt and Whielden Street. There are over 80 listed buildings on the High Street alone, including the Market Hall. --- Added extra -- Why not rest your legs after the walk by attending a launch concert for the new Chilterns Music Festival on Sunday evening in Amersham? Details and tickets here. You could even visit one of Amersham's fantastic restaurants in between!
