Chalfont St Giles
Featuring a pretty village centre with shops and cottages around the village green and pond.
The village was home to epic poet John Milton, whose cottage is open to the
public. Above the village stands The Vache, an Elizabethan mansion, once home to
friends of Captain Cook who erected a monument to him in the grounds. There are
a number of inns in the village; The Pheasant dates from the 16th Century and was
frequented by Oliver Cromwell and his troops during the Civil War. Many people
will recognise the village as Walmington-on-Sea in the Dad's Army film.
