Crafting the landscape Today the quiet of the woods can be broken from time to time by a tractor in neighbouring fields, or the retort of ahunting gun. In the mid-19th century the woods and valleys echoed with the strike of an axe, the rasp of the saw, the hum of a lathe and the shouts of men as they laboured to supply fuel wood and timber for woodware and furniture workshops, or worked at the craft of ‘bodging’. This article is my contribution to the Chilterns Conservation Board (CCB) Landscape Conservation Action Plan (LCAP) which is the guiding document for the Chalk, Cherries and Chairs Landscape Partnership Scheme. It provides background to the Chilterns landscape and its distinctive character, and brings together the research, consultation and planning that have taken place since 2016, under the leadership of the CCB, and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Bucks New University is a partner in the scheme.
