The Chiltern Countryside


'Among the low hills of the tree-covered Chilterns there are old farms and peaceful villages. Here, too, is Stoke Poges churchyard, which inspired Gray’s Elegy, and Jordans churchyard, the burial place of William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania. The poet Milton’s cottage is in Chalfont St. Giles, and near Amersham is Shardeloes, the family home of the great Sir Francis Drake.
London is bordered by a countryside rich in beauty and historical associations.' [1]
