Abstract

I have had the privilege of working with the Chilterns Conservation Board over the past eighteen months on a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver ‘Chalk, Cherries and Chairs’, a Landscape Partnership Scheme. The Chilterns - a wooded chalk escarpment stretching from the River Thames in Oxfordshire, to Hitchin in Hertfordshire is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The landscape and its culture are under threat from development - housing and HS2 in particular - with ancient woodlands being sold off, and wildlife, orchards and hedgerows disappearing. I am delighted to say that the bid was successful with funding secured for five years, enabling hundreds of volunteers to be involved in projects designed to protect the central Chilterns and its heritage and to connect people to their landscape.
