After the remembrance garden, I toddled over down the high street. Amersham was on the road up north from London. It would be the perfect distance from central London on a stage coach so the stages would usually stop here overnight. So the town has a load of coach inns along one side of the road..Here are some of the photographs I took of the amble through the main road.
Lovely looking houses here, medieval in time. The framework was built in timber and then the intervening spaces were filled with rocks and mortar. Pretty solid construction and then whitewashed with lime..
See what I mean by the inns? the coaches would drive in under this bridge like structure, stop, let the passengers get off, and then the stage coach will drive inside the inn and then get stabled inside.
And another inn. Lovely high street, but the gap between the two rows means that its not very cosy as you would see in some other towns…
Next stop, a cute little museum.
