49 High Street
Join a guided walk to learn more about life – and death – in Tudor Amersham. Guides in 16th century costumes will tell you about the the markets and fairs, the housing and work, language and health. You will learn about the very different diets of the rich and poor – but did the poor have a healthier diet? Learn why the weak go to the wall and when you could put a feather in your cap! What were the beliefs of the time? Why were 6 men and 1 woman burnt to death and where? We will pass the cottage where the Lollard heretics held their secret meetings and the inn where they were imprisoned – is it haunted by one of their guards or by the daughter who was forced to light her father’s pyre?
