£35.55 – £59.95
From the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain
The Chiltern Hills divides the County of Buckinghamshire into two, almost equal parts. By 1610, when the map was produced the magnificent beech forests that used to cover the whole of the Chilterns were cut back. The reason for this drastic action was that the forests concealed many thieves and vagabonds who prayed on those bringing their sheep, pigs, cattle and geese to market in London from their homes in Wales.
