By the Newsletter Editorial Team
Looking for something extra special for the friends and relatives who have everything this Christmas? Then fill their stockings (and their heads) with a few fascinating facts for a change: in the shape of our bumper booklet, A History of The Lee ‘The story of a special Chiltern Parish’.

Featuring striking new pictures by local photographer Pippa Hart, A History of The Lee explores some of the events, places and people that have helped shape the village we know and love, from Neolithic times to the present day.

For example, did you know that the first person to own The Lee rode with William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings and has been immortalised on the Bayeux tapestry? Or that The Lee Old Church is the oldest standing building in the Chiltern District?

The 36 page-long, A History of The Lee has been produced in glorious full Technicolor by the Newsletter team as part of our 100th edition celebrations and includes some of the articles that have appeared in the Newsletter over the past year – along with plenty of new information. And at the ridiculously low price of just £5.00 it’s a must-read for anyone who lives in the Lee … or knows someone who does.

To get your copies wrapped up in time for Christmas pop into the SHOP @ The Lee, or The Cock and Rabbit or The Old Swan – anytime from Saturday 3rd December.
