I have just got back from a guided walk which is held on Sundays at 2.30pm. What a fantastic tour of local Amersham, the walks are between 1 ½ to 2 hours long and cost only £2.50 each. Local knowledge and great views are all included in this tour. A pleasant gentle walk along the stream at the rear of the houses was beautiful.

There are many interesting artifacts here and the museum will be expanding next year as they have purchased the property next door
Remember , when visiting, to look at the garden too as there are many flowers and herbs used for medical purposes there
Went on the history walk which was extremely interesting and I would recommend this

Our day coach excursion to ''Metroland'' made its final stop in charming Amersham today and it had been arranged that the museum would open specially for our party of 22. We were given an interesting talk in the garden and had plenty of time to look at the collections telling the history of the area from prehistoric times to the present day.
I understand that the museum will have much more space soon as the adjoining building has been purchased for its use.
The garden looked particularly lovely at this time of year and the various herbs are labelled with their names and the medicinal purposes for which they were used.
At the bottom of the long, narrow garden is a small 'outhouse' which backs on to the fast-flowing River Misbourne. I'll leave readers to guess why...
