I must confess I have never actually lived in the Chilterns. I was born and brought up in Leicestershire and although when I was 21 I moved much further south to Bracknell to begin a career at the Met Office, my familiarity with the Chilterns has grown very gradually, with my knowledge at first limited mainly to the far south of the region. Only in quite recent years have I become more adventurous, working inwards and northwards to explore what are still to this day foreign lands to me. The Chilterns I know best are very much out on the fringes, places that for many years I was unaware were even within its boundary. Even so, there are now many places that I have come to regard as special enough to be included in 'My Chilterns'. Here is just a flavour.
