My Hometown Amersham
The town I was brought up in most of my life is Amersham. It Is a small market town and civil parish within Chiltern district in Buckinghamshire, England, 27 miles northwest of London, in the Chiltern Hills. The population of Amersham is only around 17,000 which is nice. As when you walk around you are always likely to see someone you know. There are two parts of Amersham: the old town that has the really old buildings, and Amersham on the Hill: the newer part built up in the 50’s. The locals call it Top Amersham or Top town.
There is not a lot to do in Amersham but it has a few nice cafes and restaurants surrounded by beautiful nature from farmers fields to woods where you can walk around. It is part of the Chiltern Hills – an area of outstanding natural beauty! As well as this there are a wide variety of pubs some as old as 1100 ad. The main thing I love about Amersham is the old buildings – half-timbered and old cottages.
Amersham has been a filming location for a lot of TV shows and films such as Midsomer Murders, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Celebrity Masterchef and Cuckoo to name a few.
