As I am very keen on environmental issues, I have bought an ancient woodland (with my husband) in The Chilterns and I am happy to offer CEDu3a members a guided tour. It’s a beautiful and very old wood which is easily accessible from London. It was originally part of Lord Monckton’s estate so it has been relatively well preserved in many ways. The guide – my husband – is very informed and has a genuine passion for the environment so those who care for saving the planet are particularly welcome. This is quite an historic area with Great Missenden being the nearest village. There is a quaint pub nearby for drinks or lunch if you wish. Please contact me via if you are interested in visiting the woodland and for further details.
